Yellowstone National Park records third-busiest year

February 06, 2019 - 9:16 PM

BOZEMAN, Mont. - Yellowstone National Park had its third-busiest year on record with more than 4.1 million visitors last year.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports the park in Wyoming had about 1,500 fewer visitors in 2018 than in 2017.

Visitation last year was a 3.5 per cent decrease from the park's record-breaking 2016, when it recorded more than 4.2 million guests.

The park says it used numbers from an automated counter that records traffic at the north entrance to figure out visitation in late December during the partial government shutdown.

Most of the park's visitors are recorded during the summer months. Visitation drops off in November when most of the park entrances close.
