The PARVS survey was used to estimate demand models on Forest Service land; for 12 activities in 9 Forest Service retions. A reverse multinomial logit gravity model was used. A first stage estimates probablity that a trip observed at a recreation site originated from a county. A second state uses traditional travel cost models to derive site demand, and used to estimate consumer surplus. Relative values for different primary activity trips across different regions, and within regions, are examined.
