How Well Do You Know the Smith Rock Visitor?

Smith Rock Visitor Taking Live Survey at Smith Rock State ParkBetween April 28 and June 19 of 2016, a survey was collected on the Smith Rock visitor from close to 700 people here at the park.

The objective was to get more data on both day and overnight use visitors to help improve the park. Then it was weighted by 3-year average park visitation stats to get a more complete picture.
