The demand for water-oriented recreational land has rapidly increased over the past 25 years. This demand extends beyond the day and weekend usage typical of intermediate recreation facilities to a growing desire by households for primary and vacation home-sites in reservoir areas. The land development simulation model presented in the report is addressed to this need. The model simulates reservoir area residential location patterns through a randomizing procedure in which households are assigned to sites on the basis of the supply of land available and its attractiveness for recreational and permanent residential use.
