In April 2021, Yellowstone and Grand Teton experienced a record number of visitors. This didn’t surprise the park’s superintendent Cam Sholly as he had made that prediction back in March.
“I predicted a record season, and I think we’re on track for that,” Sholly told the Billings Gazette.
Yellowstone National Park saw 67,000 recreational visitors passing through the entrance. That number is 40 percent more than April 2019, surpassing the number by 19,000 visitors. The previous record was 59,000 people in 2016.
