WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service says it will be conducting surveys over the next year at the Daniel Boone Nation Forest to determine recreational trends and the interests of national forest visitors.

A statement from the agency on Wednesday says surveys will be conducted randomly at recreation areas and along Forest Service roadways.

Visitors may be asked questions about their visit including which recreational activities they prefer, how long they stayed, how many people they traveled with and how satisfied they were with their trip.

The information will also help evaluate economic benefits of recreation activities in some communities.

The last visitor-use survey was conducted five years ago.
