Abstract

The authors contend that most recreation research cannot stand the question, "So what?” From that point the article proceeds to a prescription for a meaningful approach to recreation research, which links recreation research to planning within a systems context. Researchable questions are posed dealing with preferences and behavior, resource capabilities and environmental impacts, and the nature and dynamics of institutions for the original state, process, and desired state segments of a planning system.
