Teton Park Attendance Down in April

GTNP Entrance

Grand Teton National Park is reporting a slip in recreational visits during April compared with the same month last year.  Figures released by the National Park Service Visitor Use Statistics Office show 33-hundred fewer people werein the park for R&R amounting to nearly a 7% decline from April 2012.  Inclement weather is considered largely to blame for that decrease in the number of park recreationists. Combined with non-recreational visits, park activity decreased less than a percent.  More significantly, visitations overall to Grand Teton National Park this year are up 22% from the first four months last year.  With the opening of facilities in Grand Teton National Park this week, visitations are beginning to pick up for the season.

    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
