After setting a record for visitations to the park last year, Yellowstone National Park is outpacing last year’s numbers over the first six months of the year. 2015 saw 4,097,710 tourists visiting the park, and the numbers for the first six months of 2016 are up 10 percent. Visitation for June alone was up seven percent.

Most of the park’s five entrances also showed an increase in vehicles for the month of June compared to June 2015. The West Entrance recorded the largest vehicle increase in June, with 9,020 more vehicles than June 2015.

As for why the park continues to see record numbers, park managers point to the National Park Service’s centennial year, marketing and tourism promotions by the states of Montana and Wyoming. Lower gas prices are also believed to be a factor.
