Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP)

Montana’s five-year strategy and vision for outdoor recreation management.

<< Back to Plans & Reports main page.

The Montana Outdoor Recreation Plan, also known as the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), is the state’s comprehensive plan for outdoor recreation and conservation management and planning. The document helps all levels of public land managers and private recreation providers meet needs pertaining to outdoor recreation. SCORP represents a collaborative effort between Montana’s diverse recreation providers, the tourism community, and residents; and provides a strategy to guide management of Montana’s outdoor recreation resources in a holistic and effective manner.

The plan:

  • Identifies major outdoor recreation trends, needs, and issues of statewide importance, both at the state and regional level
  • Evaluates the supply and demand of recreation facilities and resources
  • Provides guidance to direct Montana’s stateside apportionment of the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund grant program
  • Provides strategies, priorities, and actions for implementation to enhance recreation over the next five years
