Yellowstone visitation is up thus far in 2014.
In the past five months, Yellowstone National Park saw a total of 415,185 visitors foray into the park, up from 392,222 in the same period in 2013. In particular, there was a considerable uptick in January, April and May as visitors streamed through the Park’s five entrances. The only dip in visitation occurred in February, as visitation dropped by 9.08%
The table below, from a YPS press release, shows the exact figures for Yellowstone visitation:
|Recreational Visits 2014||Recreational Visits 2013||Change|
These statistics were collected by tallying the number of vehicles and subsequently multiplying it with a person-per-vehicle ratio.
These numbers promise even higher visitation statistics, as we move closer into Yellowstone’s peak season.
