Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Several changes in the characteristics of campers' visits were discovered by comparing camping permit data before and after the start of differential campsite pricing at a New Hampshire state park campground in 1973. Differentials included a premium charge for waterfront sites and a preferential rate for New Hampshire residents. Attendance by state residents increased significantly over the average for the preceding 2 years. Total revenue increased by 61 percent. The preferential rates did not produce longer visits or more frequent repeat visits by state residents. Use of waterfront sites did not decline in response to premium rates. Significant declines in visit length and party size were noted, but appear to be independent of the fee policies.
