YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK - More than 440,000 people visited Yellowstone National Park in May, marking the busiest May on record, according to park officials.

The park hosted 446,875 visits in May 2018, which is more than a 6% increase over last year and surpasses May of 2016 as the busiest May ever in the park.

Park officials note that so far this year, the park has hosted 570,823 visits, up 3.5% from the same period last year. Year-to-date visitation in 2018 is 37 percent higher than five years ago in 2014.

The continued high level of visitation in the park underscores the importance of planning a Yellowstone adventure ahead of time. Visitors should anticipate delays or limited parking at popular destinations, and check road conditions on the park’s website before they arrive.
