Nevada Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
In Nevada, the Division of State Parks (NDSP) leads the development of the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), a research-based plan that evaluates the supply and demand of outdoor recreation resources and facilities across all jurisdictions. Specifically, the SCORP identifies outdoor recreation needs and opportunities for recreation improvements and development, provides the foundation for the distribution of Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) monies for outdoor recreation and open space acquisition, and outlines the overall status of outdoor recreation in Nevada. At the core of the SCORP is an implementation plan designed to address the needs and goals identified by Nevada’s citizens, recreation planners, land managers, and community leaders.
The 2022-2026 Nevada SCORP was developed over a 12-month period and represents a collaboration between NDSP and the Nevada Division of Outdoor Recreation (NDOR). From the extensive data collection, analysis, and significant public and land manager engagement and feedback, the SCORP provides an aspirational yet essential vision for the future of outdoor recreation in Nevada.
