Recreation areas--Michigan--Yankee Springs

Abstract

Yankee Springs Recreation Area is one of Michigan's many outdoor recreation areas serving the demands of a growing population. This study has three objectives: 1. to investigate the demand for recreational land use in the area. 2. to determine the patterns of recreational land use and to assess the related existing facilities. 3. to discuss plans and recommendations for the expansion of recreational land and facilities within the guidelines of the federal Outdoor Recreation Resource Review Commission and Michigan Conservation Department. The study was accomplished primarily through combined use of direct field research, statistical analysis, and interviews. Yankee Springs Recreation Area has benefited from decades of conscientious planning, development, and management. Now it faces a need to translate plans for improvement and expansion into action or turn away growing numbers of visitors.
