Description: In 1979, over 450 million recreation days of use were reported at 419 Corps of Engineers lakes and other project areas. This figure represents a 2.7 percent increase in use over 1977 (424 million recreation days). The Corps and other agencies (quasi-public, state, local and other federal agencies) manage 3,175 recreation areas on a total of 11.2 million acres of land and water. The Corps manages 2,229 (70 percent) of the recreation areas and has the responsibility for managing more than 44,000 developed campsites. Other agencies, excluding concessionaires, manage 946 recreation areas with 28,000 developed campsites.
