The Delaware National Recreation Area is now one of the most heavily used national recreation areas in the U.S.  The National Park Service does not hide the controversy that stopped the dam and created the Recreation Area.  Its web site tells the reader that “The park offers many recreational activities that range from hiking, boating, fishing, and camping, reliving the past through period celebrations, to the park's birth during the conservation and environmental movements of the 1960s and 1970s.”[2]
