Yellowstone Visitation Down Slightly
Written by wendycorr on August 14, 2019
Visitation in Yellowstone National Park last month was lower than the last few years, although the overall number of visitors remains high.
The park hosted 936,062 visits in July 2019. This is a .48 percent decrease from last July. So far in 2019, the park has hosted almost 2.3 million visits – that’s down 1.19 percent from the same period last year. But year-to-date visitation in 2019 is slightly higher than five years ago, in 2015.
Officials say the continued high level of visitation in the park underscores the importance of planning a Yellowstone adventure ahead of time. Visitors should anticipate delays or limited parking at popular destinations, and check road conditions on the park’s website before they arrive.
