Written by Andrew-Rossi on July 12, 2018
Yellowstone National Park saw an increase in visitors over last year, with officials reporting the second-highest June attendance on record.
The park hosted 810,884 visits in June 2018. This is a slight increase over last year, with about 7,000 fewer than this year, but below June of 2016 which remains the busiest June ever in Yellowstone. Over 838 thousand people visited Yellowstone in June of 2016.
So far in 2018, the park has hosted 1.38 million visits, which is up 2.5 percent from the same period last year. Year-to-date visitation in 2018 is 27 percent higher than five years ago in 2014.
The continued high level of visitation in the park underscores the importance of planning a Yellowstone adventure ahead of time. Park officials say visitors should anticipate delays or limited parking at popular destinations, and check road conditions on the park’s website before they arrive.
