Description: Campsite impacts were studied in four wildernesses in the South-Central United States - Caney Creek, AR, Upper Buffalo, AR, Hercules Glades, MO, and Garden of the Gods, IL. Compared with wildernesses in other regions, campsite densities in these wildernesses are low to moderate, while impact intensities on individual campsites are low. Implications for monitoring procedures, management strategies, and educational programs are suggested.
Keywords: campsites, monitoring, recreation use, visitor education, wilderness management, Caney Creek Wilderness, Upper Buffalo Wilderness, Hercules Glades Wilderness, Garden of the Gods Wilderness, Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri
