November Visitation Up In GTNP

December 17, 2013 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming No Comments
GTNP Winter

November statistics are published now for visitations to Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and not surprisingly, Grand Teton National Park has again posted an increase while Yellowstone remains uncertain due to this year’s change in the statistical formula for determining visitation there.  According to the National Park Service Public Use Statistics Office, Grand Teton saw in excess of 500 more people visiting the park for recreation last month than during the same month last year.  Together with those in the park for non-recreational purposes, visits were 2.4% higher during 2013 for November and 5 ¼ % year-to-date.  In Yellowstone, in the meantime, Spokesman Al Nash says there was one fewer day that people could access the interior of the park which immediately would lead to fewer visitations.  That spelled about 11-hundred fewer vehicles entering the park.  However, with the formula change it is difficult if not impossible to determine the percentage of change from 2012’s visitation level.
