Service would have continued to manage Chickasaw National Recreation 
Area as it is since the approval of the 1979 General Management Plan 
Supplement and the 1994 amendment. There would have been no major 
change in the management of Chickasaw National Recreation Area under 
this alternative. Management under alternative C would have focused on 
the protection and restoration of natural and cultural resources. There 
would have been fewer facilities and a narrower range of visitor 
opportunities, although there would have been a better opportunity to 
experience resources in relatively natural or recovering conditions.

facilities would have been built, but generally they would have been 
placed outside Chickasaw National Recreation Area or in previously 
developed areas.
