REGION- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will conduct visitor surveys this spring and summer at the Mansfield Hollow Lake Recreation area in Mansfield, and the West Thompson Lake recreation area in Thompson. This is part of a nationwide effort to survey visitors at more than 30 Corps-managed lake site recreation areas. Visitors leaving these recreation areas will be asked about their length of stay and overall experience. Interns from the Student Conservation Association (SCA) will conduct the short interviews (less than 3 minutes) with visitors. These surveys will provide the Crops with baseline information to be used for budgeting and planning purposes. Findings will held to ensure that recreation facilities at Corps lakes are operating efficiently to maximize visitor outdoor opportunities and enjoyment.
