Yellowstone Visitation Increases

YNP Sign

Yellowstone National Park last month posted a 3¼% increase in recreational visitation and a 1.4% increase in overall traffic into the park.  The monthly use statistics were published this week by the National Park Service Public Use Statistics Office. Altogether, the report says 756,487 people visited the park during April for either business or pleasure – nearly 1-thousand more than the same month last year.  Year-to-date, the report goes on Yellowstone has seen a 4½% increase in visitation.  Grand Teton National Park, meanwhile, is still in a transitional period with its counting equipment and dependable statistics for comparison are not available from last year.  As such, Park officials say the significant percentage drop in visitation listed in the report should not be considered accurate.
