Yellowstone National Park was attractive to visitors over the three-day Labor Day weekend.
Visitation was up 17% to 24% compared to Saturday, Sunday and Monday of the Labor Day weekend in 2019. Last year visitation dropped off after a snowstorm made travel difficult via the East and South entrances.
Total visitation on Saturday was 11,062, up 24%. Sunday tourism climbed a bit more to 12,380, a 20% increase. On Monday 9,982 visitors entered the park, up 17%.
Yellowstone is on pace for a record-setting year of visitation thanks to the continued interest in domestic travel. July set a new all-time high with more than 1 million tourists and June was close behind.
Statistics for August have not yet been released.
