Whether it’s kayaking, camping, hiking, fishing, or swimming, people have been spending a lot of time outdoors in Ohio. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) wants Ohioans to weigh in on new or expanded recreational opportunities through a statewide survey to contribute to Ohio’s State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP).

“Ohio is home to some of the best recreation in the country, any time of year,” ODNR Director Mary Mertz said. “Our goal is to make each visitor experience the very best it can be and to do that we need to know what Ohioans want to see and what we should target for future improvement.”

Feedback from the survey will help determine outdoor recreation priorities of Ohioans. The survey results will be included in the five-year SCORP, which provides information on recreation trends and serves as a reference document for state officials distributing federal and state grants for public park facilities around the state.

The last SCORP update was finalized in 2018 and can be read here. To have your opinion heard take the survey here.
