Interactive Map: Recreation & Tourism and Drought

Drought impacts the recreation and tourism sectors both directly and indirectly. For example, lower water levels or snowpack affects the availability of recreational activities and associated tourism, and a resulting loss of revenue can severely impact supply chains and the economy. Use the interactive map below to view the location of U.S. national parks, reservoirs, and ski resorts alongside drought and climate conditions. Or, view a full-screen version of this map.
