The report on visitation to Yellowstone National Park during October has been published now and it indicates growth in visitation compared with the same month last year.  According to the statistics published by the National Park Service Visitor Use Statistics Office, recreational visits to the park numbered 177,069 for nearly a one percent increase from October 2011.  It’s also the second highest October on record after October 2010.  Traffic through the South Entrance alone was up 8% from one year ago.  Total visitation, which includes those in the park for purposes other than recreation numbered nearly 251-thousand for an increase of 8/10% from the previous year.  Year to date, the National Park Service says Yellowstone visitation is up slightly more than 2%, and is shaping up to be the second highest level on record.
