Yellowstone Visits Up

The National Park Service Visitor Use Statistics Office has announced nearly a quarter million recreational visitors entered Yellowstone National Park in June for a six percent decline in visitation from the previous month.  However, all may not be as it appears since Yellowstone has revised the way it counts park visitors.  Last summer, Yellowstone conducted surveys to gauge the accuracy of the multipliers which have been in use for nearly 20 years.  Based on the survey results, Yellowstone began using new, lower person-per-vehicle multipliers as of January 2013.  The new system aligns park counting more closely to that of neighboring Grand Teton National Park’s counts.  Spokesman Al Nash says by counting the actual vehicles entering the park for recreation in June, the visitation figure actually rises by 5 ¾% which is very similar to the increase seen last month in Grand Teton.  Altogether, Yellowstone has seen a little over 1,016,000 recreational visitors so far this year.
