Abstract

THIRTY-THREE WILDERNESS campsites in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area were studied for 5 years ( 1968-1972) to determine impact of visitor use. All 33 campsites were developed in 1967 by the U.S. Forest Service under its criteria. During the study, the effects on soils, vegetation, and site size were measured and mapped twice each year. Photographs were taken periodically from permanent points. At selected sites, detailed soil and water quality data were also collected. Some sites had previous use, and others were altered or closed during the study. However, 23 sites had no previous use. Through visitor registration, nearly complete use data were obtained for these 23 locations. Visitors completed cards and questionnaires on site selection. appearance, and on their satisfaction with the sites.
