The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between place attachment and environmental stewardship for outdoor recreation participants at Jeju Gotjawal Provincial Park. We additionally tested whether the place-of-residence(Jeju residents vs. tourists) had a moderating effect on the place attachment–stewardship relationship. We collected a total of 457 surveys using the purposive sampling method and performed the correlation, reliability, CFA, and path analysis using SPSS 26.0/Lisrel 8.70. The results partially supported our hypothesized model. First, outdoor recreationists’ place attachment to the park did not influence personal environmental stewardship. Second, their place attachment had a positive influence on both public and social environmental stewardship. Last, we found the moderating effect of place-of-residence on the hypothesized relationship. The effects of place attachment on both public and social environmental stewardship were stronger for Jeju tourists than residents. However, for tourists, place attachment did not contribute to the development of personal environmental stewardship. More investigation is required to understand how to encourage outdoor recreationists’ personal engagement in stewardship behavior. This study showed that the place attachment-stewardship relationship could vary depending on the place of residence. Educational programs for tourists should be conducted so that they can recognize place identity to increase their environmental responsibility.
