GTNP Sign

Unlike neighboring Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park reports September’s visitation figures declined by 4.3% compared with a 2.6% decline in Yellowstone.  However, like Yellowstone, the September 2011 figure is the second highest September on record.  According to the monthly report from the National Park Service Public Use Statistics office, 403,649 visitors passed through the gates of Grand Teton National Park last month compared with 421,830 in September of 2010.  Nearly 100-thousand additional visitors were counted in the park last month for non-recreational purposes. Year-to-date, Grand Teton officials report almost 3-million-333-thousand visitors have entered the park for both recreational and non-recreational endeavors.
