DescriptionWe explored the relationship between motivation and enduring involvement using a sample of campers drawn from three distinct campsites in a southeastern National Forest. The campsites varied along the ROS continuum form developed to wilderness. Using multidimensional conceptualizations of both constructs, we hypothesized that the dimensions of motivation would positively influence the dimensions of involvement. Our findings illustrated that, while not all paths were statistically significant, the effect of motivation on involvement was consistent with our hypothesis. No variation in the variation among the path coefficients was observed across the three sites.
