Comparative Use of Personal and Installed Tables and Stoves in Public Campgrounds.
Bury, Richard L.; Dutra, Robert S.
This survey reports the use of installed tables and stoves as compared with the use of personal tables and stoves at 20 campgrounds in the central Sierra Nevada during the summer of 1961. The data reveal about 70 percent of the campers brought a portable stove. Installed grates were used by only half of the campers who had them available, and almost all of this fireplace use was for functions other than cooking. On the other hand, installed tables were almost always used even though many campers brought portable tables. Results of the survey seem to indicate that it would be advisable to decrease per-unit investment in stoves while specifying tables generous in size. Additional implications for provision and design of campsite stoves and tables are also presented. (BL)
