Description: Campers at Indian Boundary Campground in Tenr.essee were interviewed during 1966 and 1967 to determine the amount of shading they preferred. The overstory in this campground was selectively thinned several years earlier. This gave campers a choice of campsites, ranging from those so heavily shaded that little sunlight reached the forest floor to campsites that reaeived almost full sunlight. Many visitors to the campground reported that degree of shade was important in their selection of campsites, and many inidcated that they want some copromise between full shade and full sunlight. Study findings indicate that recreation managers and planners should examine the current design standard that advocates little or no tree cutting in developed campgrounds.
