The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and the Obed Wild and Scenic River have arranged for a visitor use survey to be done in each park during September. The surveys will provide information that will help determine where park visitors are coming from, what people like to do when they come to a park, what are visitors' opinions about park facilities and interpretive programs, and what park features and qualities are most important to visitors.

In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
