The best decisions about increasing water-based recreation involve knowing how visitors regard the factors that affect site quality. A 1966 summer study of visitor attitudes toward site quality factors at four western Nevada lakes had the purposes of: (1) collecting physical data, including wind speed, cloud cover, air and water temperature, water odors and water coliform count of the sites; (2) correlating this data with visitors' attitudes; (3) counting the number of automobiles parked at recreation areas; (4) determining the amount of litter and trash at these sites; and (5) determining visitors' attitudes. The 25 major findings are summarized. (WRSIC abstract)
