Yellowstone numbers

Yellowstone National Park is reporting that visitation was way down compared to last year in October.
The park hosted 230,000 tourists in October which is a 27% decrease from October 2021 but is a 36% increase from October 2019 which was the last year before COVID.
In June,  historic flooding closed the park for weeks as park visitors were evacuated and road repairs got underway.
So far in 2022, the park has hosted 3,246,686 recreation visits, down 32% from 2021 at the same time.
More data on park visitation, including how we calculate these numbers, is available on the  NPS Stats website
