Record-High Attendance at Yellowstone

July was a record-breaking month for attendance at Yellowstone National Park, hosting more
than 900,500 people. Up 6 percent from the previous all-time monthly record set in July
1995, and up more than 11 percent from July 2008, officials are crediting the park’s
affordability. This is the second record-setting month for the park this year. Visitation
in June was just less than 644,000, well above the previous record of 609,000 visitors in
June 2007. For the first seven months of the year, more than 1.9 million people have
visited Yellowstone. That’s up 100,000 from the previous record of 1.8 million recorded in
2007. With August and September, two more boom months yet to come, the park could break the
annual visitation record of 3.15 million set in 2007.
