Description: Attitudes and characteristics of campers reached by two Federal campsite reservation programs in experimental use during the summer of 1973 were surveyed. Most campers strongly favored reservations, but preferred that one company sell reservations to all government campgrounds. Questionnaire responses indicated need for a systematic procedure for referring campers to vacant campsites, along with a more effective program of information on the reservation systems. A majority of campers were satisfied to get their first choice of campground, but a few also wanted freedom to choose their camp-site. The typical camper was a well-educated, high-income professional or manager, with considerable camping experience. His job allowed him to plan his camping trips in advance and he preferred to do so, though often he planned less than 5 weeks ahead.
