About this book

The global popularity of outdoor recreation and ecotourism is on the increase. At present, there is little systematic information on the management practices that have been successful in National Parks. Managing Outdoor Recreation: Case Studies in the National Parks presents the issue of how to manage outdoor recreation in ways that protect the integrity of park resources and the quality of the visitor experience. Using case studies drawn from the U.S. National Park System, it illustrates a range of successful management approaches that can be applied worldwide. It is suitable for graduate and undergraduate students in outdoor recreation and park management practitioners.
