Economic Analysis of Outdoor Recreation in Washington State

This report is the most comprehensive outdoor recreation economic study in the U.S. to date. We analyze the market and non-market economic benefits of Washington’s 23 million acres of public land as well as its private recreation areas. Results are separated by county, legislative district, and management jurisdiction, showing a thriving and diverse outdoor recreation economy. The economic impact of out-of-state visitors and the value of ecosystem services are also examined.
