A study conducted with visitors to the Big Sur region of California during summer 2002 is presented. An onsite survey was administered to visitors to the U.S. Forest Service and California State Parks day-use and overnight facilities. Recreational constraints owing to wildland fire and fire management are detailed along with the effects of activity type, visitor demographics and other characteristics, and views of these constraints. Differences primarily exist in views of constraints related to regulations.
