Contact: Morgan Warthin, (307) 344-2015MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS, WY - Visitors continued enjoying the southern loop of Yellowstone National Park over the Memorial Day weekend. A large snowstorm closed the major mountain passes in the park on Saturday, which required the park to close the east and south entrances while crews cleared the roads. This dramatically lowered visitation on Saturday (May 23).
Visitation through the east and south entrances on Sunday (May 24) and Monday (Memorial Day, May 25) was very comparable to the 2019 Memorial Day weekend.
Due to the snowstorm Saturday, visitation was only compared for Sunday and Monday of the weekend. Totals for both entrances were 97% of 2019. Vehicle counts per day are broken down below.
|2020||Sunday, May 24, 2020||Monday, May 25, 2020||Total Both Days|
|2019||Sunday, May 26, 2019||Monday, May 27, 2019||Total Both Days|
