Outdoor Recreation on Government Lands in Texas, An Analysis.
Reed, David J.; Reid, Leslie M.
This study represents an inventory of major government, non-urban outdoor recreation programs and facilities in Texas, as well as an indication of visitor use reported by individual agencies. The purpose of the analysis is to illustrate the importance of outdoor recreation in Texas and the contribution of various agencies, rather than to determine the quality of recreation programs in the state. Presented first is an examination of outdoor recreation on federal government lands in Texas including those administered by the National Park Service, Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife, U. S. Forest Service, and U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. Following this is a description of state government lands administered by the Texas Park and Wildlife Department, Texas Forest Service, and Texas River Authorities. Information is also given for lakes under jurisdiction of water districts, municipalities, and counties. Numerous tables provide statistics on each area regarding name, location, facility description, recreation opportunities, administering agency, acreage, and 1966 attendance. The data were obtained directly from published reports and records of agencies and generally reflect an accurate description of agency involvement in outdoor recreation. A list of references is appended. (BL)
