Description: Recreational boaters on the National Park Service managed Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River were surveyed about their characteristics, management preferences, and user encounters. Field interviews were conducted from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend during the summer of 1996. A total of 650 boaters were contacted at public and commercial access sites and asked to participate in a brief interview and a follow-up mail survey. During the interview process, 602 boaters gave their addresses and agreed to participate in the mail survey. Of the 585 surveys deliverable, 326 were returned for a 56% response rate. Comparisons were made with a similar boater study conducted on the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River in 1979.
