During the last three decades, there has been a significant growth in the outdoor recreation industry. In 1969, there were 17.6 million visits to national parks, and by 1978, that number had increased to 283.1 million (Gregory, 1972; U.S. Dept. of Commerce, 1979). Similarly, visits to national forests grew from 5 million in 1925 to over 147 million in 1965 (Clawson and Knetsch, 1966).
