Description: In 1993 a cooperative study was initiated by the USDI Bureau of Land Management and the USDA Forest Service’s Pacific Southwest Research Station to study the recreational needs of visitors to the Redding Resource Area in central and northern California. The study addressed specific issues in the Redding Resource Management Plan, such as attracting recreationists from local versus regional populations, as well as items previously established as important in other visitor research pilots, such as preferred amenities. Four seasons of data collection occurred, with the report covering all seasons. Eleven sites within either the Interlakes Special Recreation Management Area or the Sacramento River Recreation Area were targeted for study. Support for additional development and land acquisition was found, and most respondents were on a repeat visit and were well satisfied with the area. Conflict between recreation groups was rare. Results show the recreation patterns at selected sites and areas within the Redding Resource Management Area and provide valuable information for researchers and managers planning for these and similar areas.

Keywords: conflict, information preferences, preferences for development, recreation management, visitor case study
