Title: Ririe Reservoir Recreation Survey.
Abstract: Ririe Reservoir is located on Willow Creek, a minor tributary of the Snake River in Bonneville County of eastern Idaho. Ririe Reservoir has recreation attributes that serve Idaho Falls, Ririe, and southeastern Idaho, as well as out-of-state visitors. Primary summer activities consist of boating, swimming, fishing, camping, and picnicking. In general the survey will be used to determine carrying capacity for recreation uses on both Reclamation lands and water, and necessary management actions related to recreation, as identified in the Resource Management Plan for this reservoir. Further, the survey will determine if and when boat ramps, docks, parking, and other facilities need to be expanded for recreation during the next 10 years and if the expansion can be accomplished without detriment to natural, recreational, and cultural resources.
Description of respondents: Ririe Reservoir recreationists from Idaho Falls, Ririe, southeastern Idaho, and an indeterminate diversity of out-of-state visitors to Ririe Reservoir.
Frequency: This is a one-time voluntary survey.
Estimated completion time: An average of 30 minutes per respondent.
Annual responses: 250 respondents.
Annual burden hours: 125.
