MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyo. (KIFI) - Parkwide vehicle entries through the Labor Day weekend showed a 21% increase over the same weekend in 2019.

This year is compared to 2019 instead of 2020 because of COVID-19.  

Visitation statistics per day for September 3-6, 2021, compared to August 30-September 2, 2019, are listed below.  

Vehicle entry data is collected from park entrance stations point-of-sale system. This data informs official visitation stats, posted after the end of each month at NPS Stats website. Vehicle entry data will be shared in press releases following summer holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day).  

If you plan to travel to Yellowstone this autumn, plan ahead, expect crowding and recreate responsibly to protect yourself and the park.

  1. Too bad they cannot filter out drive-thru traffic. There are a lot of people who travel from Cody to W. Yellowstone and vice versa, as well as some who do the southern to northern route. And a lot of people travel between Cooke and other cities via the park.
    Small number compared to number of tourists, but still be interesting.
    I know traveling to and from Cody, it ain’t fun!
