Abstract
  • The objectives of this study are (1) to compare the costs of providing camping among different types of U.S. Forest Service developed campgrounds in Oregon and Washington and (2) to help determine possible policy implications regarding future management in relation to costs of providing the various campground facilities. To meet these two objectives a model is developed to estimate the short-run campground management cost functions. The model is structured to represent the total cost of managing a campground as a function of the degree of development of the campground and either annual campground use level or the number of sites on the campground as the quantity variable. The average total management cost per recreational visitor-day was estimated as $1.53 and the cost per campsite was estimated as $886.09. From the estimated model two conclusions are drawn; (1) the average U.S.F.S. campground in Region Six is managed at levels below the point of maximum economic efficiency and (2) the use fee that is charged at fee campgrounds plays an insufficient role in helping to cover total management costs.
