Abstract:

In a questionnaire study, river runners and back-packers in Oregon reacted most favorably to pricing and reservation as means of allocating scarce recreation resources. Differences in reactions to three other alternatives (lottery, queuing, and merit) apparently reflected differences in the characteristics of the areas and types of recreation studied.
