Abstract
The purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of centralized management of public water-based recreation facilities constructed by federal and state agencies in Mississippi. Six state and three federal agencies are primarily involved. Management of recreation facilities is the major function of only one agency--the State Park System. Intensity of development, level of operation and maintenance, etc., are almost of the same number as there are agencies involved. Also, management philosophies and practices vary among the agencies. Some charge entrance and/or user fees and others do not, and the nature and level of funding are diverse. Based upon interviews with representatives of each agency, analysis of available data, review of agency organization and functions, and a survey of management practices used in other states, it was concluded that centralized management is feasible in Mississippi.
