The article is devoted to the rationale for the recreational impact on the «Ivanovskie lakes» natural site and the identification of problems connected with it. The data, obtained by questioning the recreants in the area, served as the basis for compiling the statistics and portraying the average tourist staying at the Ivanovskie lakes. According to the statistics, the area proved to be a rather popular recreational site, which makes it a serious impact factor on some natural components, such as the soil-vegetable cover, damaged mostly by road transport. To determine the degree of recreational digression of the soil and the flora destroyed by private transport. An analysis of a number of sites showed a fifth stage recreational digression, which was calculated by the transect method. In conclusion, the current paper offers a number of possible solutions for the identified problems: the rationale for the ecological load on natural complexes by establishing standards for recreational impact on them and restricting the passage of vehicles or improving the roads.
