Five years of study of specific
Minnesota state park and state forest
areas and two Twin Cities city parks
indicate a range of camper types based
on facilities and campground development.
Managers differ from campers
in their perception, being more naturalistic
in their views of state parks and
forests. Most campers see these lands as developed recreation activity areas. Both managers and campers agree on the importance of interpretation of natural features as a part of the park experience. 20 pages.
