Abstract: The study examines the people’s perception of tourism on the Jos Plateau. Data were collected through field Survey via the use of questionnaire and guided interview method. The information obtained from the questionnaire was analyzed using descriptive statistical measures of mean, percentages, total and the use of tables, graphs and charts. Analyses carried out have established that the tourist resorts are experiencing low level of development, inadequate funding, inadequate provision of facilities and ineffective publicity. It has also been established that the facilities are the principal determinant of the development and management of tourist resorts on the Jos plateau. These finding/short coming suggest how poor/ineffective the tourist resorts are presently being developed and managed. On the basis of this result, it was suggested that further research is necessary into how best the shortcomings can be mitigated in order to achieve a high quality recreation. The following measures are further suggested to improve tourism on the Plateau, this include adequate funding which can be achieved through an increase Government allocation, provision of facilities, picnic/campground, shutting buses and catering services. And also through aggressive publicity/promotion campaign in order to arouse and maintain interest in tourism activities.
