LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers will conduct visitor surveys this summer at Beaver Lake.

Beginning June 10 and extending through Sept. 10, visitors exiting Beaver Lake recreation facilities will be asked about their length of stay and overall experience. Participation in the survey is voluntary. 

“The visitor survey will give us vital baseline information, which we will use for budgeting and planning purposes,” said Titus Hardiman, chief of Little Rock District’s Natural Resources Management Section.  “We want to learn more about our visitors’ recreation habits to better plan for new trends in the ways our guests spend their leisure time at our parks. The findings will also help us ensure that the recreation facilities at our lakes are operating efficiently to maximize visitor outdoor opportunities and enjoyment.”

Interns from the Student Conservation Association will conduct the visitor interviews. The Office of Management and Budget approved the survey with control number 0710-0020. 

Nationally the Corps routinely conducts visitor interviews at its lake and river projects in an effort to gauge visitors’ experiences and concerns.
