The number of recreational visitors entering Yellowstone for the first seven months of the calendar year is also down compared to last year’s record levels. The park recorded 1,848,658 recreational visitors from January through July 2011, down 8.1 percent from the 2,011,586 visitors recorded during the same period in 2010. Despite the year-to-year decline, park visitation for the first seven months of 2011 is still the third highest ever recorded.

July is typically the park’s peak visitation month, followed by August, June, September, and May.

Yellowstone hosted a record number of visitors in 2010. Over 3.64 million people visited the world’s first national park last year, up 10.55 percent over 2009, which was itself a record year.
