The penetration of thousands of recreation-oriented households into the rural hinterlands of metropolitan areas poses a number of serious environmental and service problems for affected local governmental units. This paper examines the characteristics of the development process in reservoir recreation areas and proposes a computer model for simulating residential development patterns. The model provides planners and policy makers with a useful tool for anticipating problems and needs occasioned by vacation home development and policy guidance required to control development and maintain the quality of the environment.
