I. Abstract

    Reclamation collects agency-wide recreation and concession 
information to fulfill congressional reporting requirements pursuant to 
current public laws, including the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act 
(Pub. L. 88-578), the Federal Water Project Recreation Act (Pub. L. 89-
72), and the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act (Pub. L. 108-
477). In addition, collected information will permit relevant program 
assessments of resources managed by Reclamation, its recreation 
managing partners, and/or concessionaires for the purpose of 
contributing to the implementation of Reclamation's mission. More 
specifically, the collected information enables Reclamation to (1) 
evaluate the effectiveness of program management based on existing 
recreation and concessionaire resources and facilities, and (2) 
validate the efficiency of resources for public use within partner 
managed recreation resources, located on Reclamation project lands in 
the 17 Western States.
