DescriptionA crucial question in the implementation of fee programs is how the users of recreation sites will respond to various levels and types of fees. Stated choice models can help managers anticipate the impact of user fees on people's choices among the alternative recreation sites available to them. Models developed for both day and overnight trips to several areas and types of sites in the Midwest have included user fees as one of the site attributes used to predict choices. Two of these models are presented to illustrate how stated choice models can help assess the impact of fee changes on the likelihood of choosing a site, and the importance of fees relative to other site attributes in people's choices.
