TRAVEL IN THE RECREATION EXPERIENCE -- A LITERATURE REVIEW

The motor vehicle exerts a strong influence on outdoor recreation, primarily because distant places become more accessible and because it allows flexibility in journey time and choice of route, as well as privacy, comfort, convenience and relative cheapness. Travel, the central focus of this paper, comprises two phases of Clawson's model of the recreational experience and links the user with the recreational resource. It is, moreover, a function of the structure of opportunities available to the recreationist. Emphasis is, therefore, placed on the characteristics of recreational travel and on factors affecting mobility. The spatial effects of travel are summarized and travel models are reviewed.
