Abstract

The proposal to create a new national park and national recreation area in northern Maine has generated support, but also sometimes heated opposition within the state. This article discusses findings from a survey of out-of-state visitors’ preferences and willingness to pay for the proposed park. The results support the proposal to create both a national park and a national recreation area.
