Yellowstone Attendance Up From Last Year

If you visited Yellowstone in September, you contributed to a 3.17 percent increase over last year, and there was a 4.1 increase over 2016 for January through August. There was a decrease in traffic at the South and Northeast park entrances, mainly due to the Yellowstone Fires that closed the South Entrance for 3 days in September. The number of buses visiting the park increased significantly, by 22 percent, from 1,934 in September 2015 to 2,361 buses in September 2016. Park managers say it could be many factors contributing, including the fact that it’s the National Park Service’s Centennial year, Montana and Wyoming tourism marketing, and lower gas prices.
