Description: The experiences and concerns of three types of Lake George recreational boaters were assessed to see if different levels of investment and experience with the lake lead to potentially different perceptions and concerns regarding congestion, overcrowding, and safety hazards on the lake. Mail questionnaires were sent out in the summer/fall of 2005 to the three types of users: (1) residential dock owners; (2) annual boat permit holders; and (3) temporary boat permit holders. Results highlight the similarities between residential dock owners and annual boat permit holders, and the differences between these two groups and temporary boat permit holders. Residential dock owners and annual boat permit holders have a longer history of involvement with Lake George, spend more time on the Lake, and are more likely to be concerned about crowding-related and safety issues than temporary boat permit holders. Recreation planners can use the results of this analysis to inform planning and communication with stakeholders on Lake George issues and perhaps other areas with similar types of recreational boaters.
