DescriptionAlthough place bonding has been a prominent aspect of human dimensions research for over 25 years, there remains a need to understand the construct's behavioral implications. One area that has received attention is the relationship between experience-use history (EUH), place bonding, and resource substitution. To further examine the relationships among these constructs, we hypothesized that EUH and place bonding would be significantly related to campers' willingness to substitute their camping location for another local campground. The three campgrounds in the study from which we drew our sample were managed to reflect different points along the recreation opportunity spectrum (ROS); from primitive, semi-primitive/nonmotorized, to rustic. We also examined the effect of "setting type" on the hypothesized relationships. The results of the regression analysis indicated that EUH and place bonding are significant predictors of a campers' willingness to substitute and that setting type influences these relationships.
