En France, les sites récréatifs sont généralement en accès libre, ce qui explique qu’ils sont souvent encombrés, notamment quand ils sont attractifs et proches des zones peuplées. La théorie prévoit que l’équilibre de fréquentation est alors non optimal en raison d’un effet externe d’encombrement. Alors que des travaux anciens ont caractérisé équilibre et optimum dans le cadre de modèles mono-site à demande continue (Fisher et Krutilla, 1972), les rares articles récents utilisant les modèles de choix discret se sont limités à étudier empiriquement l’équilibre et la répartition des visites entre les sites. Notre modèle théorique permet de formaliser l’équilibre et l’optimum de fréquentation, dans le cadre d’un modèle de choix discret à deux sites intégrant la décision de participation des individus, ainsi que certains instruments de gestion permettant d’améliorer le bien-être. Il a été nécessaire de recourir à une formulation générale du bien-être définie par Erlander (2005). On montre que les individus participent trop et visitent trop le site de meilleure qualité (et pas assez le site de qualité inférieure) à l’équilibre. En exprimant les désutilités collectives liées à la participation et à la mauvaise répartition des visites entre les sites, le modèle permet d’en déduire les taxes optimales et les effets sur le bien-être collectif d’une augmentation de la qualité des sites. Une illustration simplifiée est proposée à partir d’un modèle logit multinomial estimé sur des données de pêche récréative
