This paper develops a single site, single trip random utility model for describing recreation behavior. The model is applied to a 1981 survey of households in the Pennsylvania Monongahela River Basin. Hicksian benefit estimates derived from it are compared with those from a more conventional travel cost model estimated from the same survey.
