Abstract

This work evaluated the economic influence of tourism development on the host communities of cross river national park. The study was guided by six research questions and two hypotheses. Data for the research was generated using primary and secondary methods of data collection. Simple frequency percentage, mean and chisquare statistics were used to analyze the data generated for the study. The findings of the analysis proved that there was no significant difference in the economic life of the host communities of the destination before the development of the national park (x2 cal>1468.63 x2 tab 41.337) and there was no significant difference in the economic life of the host communities of the destination after the development of the national park (x2 cal>425.82 x2 tab 41.337) at 5% level significance. Based on the findings, recommendations were made.
