The general model for predicting campground use from axle count data described here includes three desired properties: (a) zero intercept, (b) fixed upper limit, and (c) decreasing campground use with increasing axle count. Parameters are estimated using nonlinear regression techniques. Nonlinear formulations are compared with alternative linear formulations. Forest Sci. 16:493-495.
