The Outdoor Recreation Economy by State

The outdoor recreation economy is large, growing faster than the overall economy, and consists of jobs in many industries.

In September 2019, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released state-level data measuring how the outdoor recreation industry contributes to state Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Boating/fishing was the largest conventional activity for the nation as a whole at $20.9 billion in current-dollar value-added. At the state level, this was the largest conventional activity in 29 states and the District of Columbia, led by Florida ($2.7 billion) and California ($1.8 billion).
