Wisconsin State Park System 2005-2010 Wisconsin Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan

2005-2010 Wisconsin Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation PlanMany factors affect the supply, demand and participation rates of outdoor recreation in Wisconsin. Since 1965 the state has developed and maintained the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) in an attempt to classify, measure and ultimately provide for the preferences and needs of a statewide recreating public.

The SCORP plan is done every five years to identify essential issues that affect the future of Wisconsin outdoor recreation and includes appropriate recommendations.

Printed and electronic versions of this publication and past SCORPs are available.
