The attractions of a region for outdoor recreation are determined in the first instance by its natural endowments, and its degree of accessibility to persons desiring to indulge in such sport. Northern Wisconsin has been fortunate in offering pleasing scenery and climate plus a variety of fish and game at a location close to sizable population centers. Just as the presence of man is necessary to impart economic value to the most beautiful sylvan setting, so it is man's activity in the region that constitutes the major threat to the continuance of the beauty of the area. The purpose of this article is to consider some of the means presently available for the control of human activity so as to preserve the recreation base of the region.
