Small mammal populations were live-trapped at two campsites and two control areas along the Colorado River in Canyonlands National Park, Utah, to determine the effects of camping impact on small mammal numbers. Data were collected from August 20 to September 10, 1976, and from April 11 to September 10, 1977.

At the Brown Betty campsite, small mammal populations, with the exception of rock squirrels, increased with campsite...
