MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, Wyoming – The number of visitors to Yellowstone National Park over Labor Day weekend was significantly larger than the same weekend in 2019.
A news release from park officials says there was a 21% increase in visitation from Sept. 3 through Sept. 6, 2021. The data is compared to 2019 instead of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Visitation statistics per day are listed below.
If you plan to travel to Yellowstone this fall, plan ahead, expect crowding and recreate responsibly to protect yourself and the park. Stay informed about changes to park operations and services by downloading the NPS Yellowstone app and visiting the website or the park’s social media channels.
