Analysis of the National Park Service Recreation Fee System, June 1977

 1. Introduction


This paper examines entrance and user fees charged at areas in the National Park System to determine whether or not they are equitable and effective. Their revenue-producing potential is also investigated. Revenues collected are returned to the Service to be used either for fee collection purposes or for outdoor recreation. Several changes to the existing fee system are analyzed and recommendations are made.
