The effects of the individual, spatial accessibility and activity on recreational travel demand

, : The effects of the individual, spatial accessibility and activity on recreational travel demand. General Technical Report Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service ( NE-145): 87-91

In order to manage park resources, planners and managers need to assess the demand for recreation. Traditionally, recreation participation has been thought to be a function of various factors, including socio-economic characteristics, site attractiveness and availability, and on-site experiences. The research reported in this paper seeks to investigate these influences on travel demand. Firstly, a background literature review is presented.
