Abstract

Innertube floating is a rapidly growing recreational activity on S Appalachian streams, USA. To provide resource managers with information about this emerging group of river recreationists, a survey of user characteristics and use behavior was conducted on three streams. Results indicate that innertube floaters are teenagers and highly educated young adults. Their activity is group-oriented and they do little advanced planning for float trips. -Authors
