There are many factors which have led to the recent tremendous increase in outdoor recreation; among the more obvious being an expanding population, higher income per capita, more leisure time, and greater mobility. A report by the staff of the National Park Service has now been furnished the committee. The report contains estimates that visits to national parks will increase from 63 million in 1959 to 240 million by 1980, and well over 400 million by the year 2000. The report sets forth 17 recommendations which the staff of the National Park Service believes would assist in providing for future demands for water recreation.
