Abstract

This study hoped to shed light on the overall importance of outdoor recreation to attracting overnight visitors to Maine’s Moosehead Lake region, including how many come to participate in outdoor recreation and what kinds of activities they participate in. The study also hoped to learn where visitors recreate most in the region, how they obtain information about where to recreate, and whether visitors distinguish between public and private lands that are accessible for recreation.
