Basic data on use patterns, including types of groups, activities, travel behavior, visitor characteristics, motives for visits, satisfaction with conditions experienced, and preferences for management actions are described and compared among areas, between day-users and campers, horsemen and hikers, and summer and fall visitors. Management implications are discussed.
