This is an investigation of the impacts on recreation participation observed at a large upstate New York resort as it converted to "all inclusive pricing". Findings indicate that both recreation participation and recreation revenue increased significantly after the implementation of the new pricing policy. Participation increases occurred in all activity areas investigated though overall resort occupancy did not significantly change. Additional analysis found that changes occurred regardless of season and, with the exception of boating, regardless of week end or week day use.
