The planning area includes lands designated as a Wilderness Study Area, a Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) and an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). Most recreational use occurs on the 25 percent of the project planning area that has these special designations. The BLM Planning for Recreation and Visitor Services Handbook states that SRMAs may need to develop additional guidance in a Recreation Area Management Plan (RAMP) for addressing complex implementation issues not specifically addressed in the RMP for an area. In this case, information collected at the SASD will provide guidance when writing a RAMP that will provide specific direction for on-the-ground implementation of the RMP. In 2013, a site-specific study was conducted by the University of Idaho and the BLM at the BLM-managed Egin Lakes Campground, which is located within the SRMA and ACEC. This study collected data on visitor demographics, visitor views on facilities and resource conditions, and visitor expectations for the campground and the surrounding area. The proposed visitor use survey will supplement the 2013 data with additional information on subjects such as existing and proposed management actions, issuance of Special Recreation Permits, conflicts between visitors, and travel management issues. For this new information collection, the University of Idaho will serve as the lead investigator and utilize a similar approach as in the previous study. Methods include administering onsite questionnaires to visitors on a stratified random sampling basis and distributing mail-back questionnaires (with an online option) to identified interests in the area (for example, local elected officials, recreation and environmental groups, and visitors whose contact information we gathered during 2014). The questionnaire will ask respondents about user conflicts, observable resource Estimated number of respondents Activity impacts, attitudes toward various resource values, sources of information about the campground sites, perspectives on facilities, commercial activities and associated management, and basic demographic data including level of education, age, and organizational affiliations. The survey will be conducted during the summer season (May through October), when visitation rates are highest. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1004–XXXX. Title: Visitor Use Survey.
