Federally owned and managed public lands occupy approximately 30 percent of the land area of the United States, and anywhere from 50 percent to more than 80 percent of the land area of many of the western states. Determining the appropriate use of these lands involves balancing objectives related to economic, recreational, and conservation interests. This paper examines established and emerging conflicts within and across these objectives through both a narrative discussion of specific topics and a series of case studies. The authors find that new challenges, including pressures to devote portions of public lands to renewable energy project development and the multifaceted threats presented by climate change, will...

This dataset depicts winter recreation sites located on the Mt. Hood and Willamette National Forests. The point locations and associated attributes were derived from the recreation opportunity information that the Forest Service collects through the Recreation Portal and shares with the public on http://ww.recreation.gov, the Forest Service World Wide Web pages (http://ww.fs.fed.us/) and the Interactive Visitor Map. Only those recreation sites with associated winter activities were retained in this dataset.
This ESRI geodatabase consists of 5 feature datsets with 23 individual polygon feature classes and two raster datasets. A master campsite polygon feature class represents the boundaries of campsites identified in the 1973, 1984, and 1991 campsite inventories of the Colorado River corridor in Grand Canyon, Arizona. The other polygon feature classes represent camp locations along the Colorado River corridor in Grand Canyon, Arizona during different survey periods using different surveying techniques. The raster datasets represent sub-aerial and sub-surface sandbar surfaces at 37 long term-monitoring sites between Lees Ferry and Diamond Creek, Arizona in Grand Canyon National Park, measured in September and October...
This dataset contains values on the potential number of visitors via in year ~2030 who are hikers/cyclists. This assumes a "push" factor of the number of recreationists is equal to 20.9% of population in the CBR/MBR region, which is the average participation rate of off-road recreation usage of both metro and non-metro residents of AZ, CA, NV, and UT from the National survey on recreation and the environment. Cordell et al. 2008. Visitation is assume to decline in half with each 1 hour of travel time.
BLM REA YKL 2011 Parks, Preserves and Reserves in the Yukon River Lowlands - Kuskokwim Mountains - Lime Hills
Federal protected areas such as national parks and preserves and wildlife refuges cover large areas of the study area. Because of its remote location, few people visit the region for recreational use, and except for the Iditarod, activities are concentrated in the summer. Recreation in the region includes sport hunting, sport fishing, and general outdoor hiking and camping activities.
This dataset contains points that represent known locations important for aquatic recreation, including marinas and boat ramps.

This feature class Describes the spatial location of recreation sites within or in close proximity to an administrative unit. Recreation sites are stored in three feature classes. The feature class Recreation_Site_pt represents recreation sites so small they are displayed as points, Recreation_Site_pl represents recreation sites large enough to be represented by area features, and Recreation_Site_ln represents recreation sites that are represented by lines. Any type of recreation site may be contained in any of the feature classes but any given recreation site must be contained in only one of the three feature classes. Recreation sites are grouped hierarchically. For example, a campground may be composed of many...
This dataset provides an estimate of water-based recreation travel corridors, based on a combination of wild and scenic rivers, and major rivers selected from NHD that were listed on the BLM rivers website. All reaches of these rivers were selected, as insufficient information exists to determine what segments may or may not be open to recreation. Other areas may be open to water-based recreation travel than are represented in this dataset.
These data represent point locations for recreation sites in New Mexico.
GIS data representing Off-Highway Vehicle area designations from the 2007 BLM Lake Havasu Field Office RMP (in Arizona and California). Two new Open Areas (Standard Wash and Shea Road/Osborne Wash) are not available for unrestricted use until after further evaluation.
This dataset depicts developed recreation sites from the BLM Kingman Field Office. This dataset was provided directly by BLM Arizona State Office to Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) without metadata. Information contained in this dataset record was completed by CBI.
This dataset depicts recreation sites compiled for BLM and USFS lands. Due to a general lack of quality recreation site information, this dataset likely under-represents the distribution and density of recreation sites, and only contains recreation sites on public lands. Additional recreation sites likely occur on state, local, and privately-owned land, but no data were available at the time of this REA. Recreation sites may have varying areas of impact, as some recreation sites may be large campgrounds whereas other sites are highly localized, such as trailheads. Source datasets had highly variable attributes. These attributes were not carried through into this dataset. Please see the source attribute in this dataset...
GIS dataset of the developed recreation sites (polygons) identified in the Lake Havasu Field Office RMP 2007. This dataset is limited to the Colorado River area where most of the recreation sites are located. The dataset includes BLM campgrounds and day use areas, along with concession leases. Additional recreation sites are in the RecreationSites_point.shp dataset. These recreation areas are on BLM lands in Arizona and California within the Lake Havasu Field Office.
