MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. (KIFI) - Yellowstone National Park-wide vehicle entries through the Memorial Day weekend showed a 50% increase over the same weekend in 2019.

This year is compared to 2019 because in 2020, during the same time frame, only the Wyoming park entrances were open due to COVID-19.

Visitation statistics (*vehicle entries) per day for May 28-31, 2021, compared to May 24-27, 2019, are listed below.

Summer is Yellowstone’s busiest season. Millions of people visit the park in June, July and August. If you plan to travel to Yellowstone this summer, plan ahead, expect crowding and recreate responsibly to protect yourself and the park.
