Visitor Access to Non Motorized Boating Areas

by Jennifer D. Braswell, & Erick Byrd (UNC Greensboro)

Participation in non-motorized boating activities, such as canoeing and kayaking, has constantly increased over the last three decades. Due, in part, to increased participation in these activities by visitors, agencies and organizations responsible for these areas are finding it increasingly difficult to provide quality tourism experiences. This paper explores one area of concern, non-motorized boat access points. The authors investigate and discuss different access point development, management, funding options, and stakeholder involvement. Impacts that can occur to the natural environment without formal access points are also addressed.
