Grand Teton National Park visitation

Grand Teton National Park is on pace for one of its busiest years, and just logged its second busiest June on on record. 

Yellowstone National Park’s pacing for its second busiest year in its 146-year history, with 1.38 million visitors through June. The record-setter was 2016, the year of the National Park Service’s centennial.

Grand Teton National Park amassed 627,000 visitors in June, the second-highest mark for the month in history. April and May were both record breakers in the Tetons for visitation.  

Numbers of air travelers seeking Jackson Hole in recent months have been charting high.

There were more “enplanements” at Jackson Hole Airport in June, nearly 38,000, more than at any time in the past five years. The 12,500 enplanements in May, however, were the fewest since 2015.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story, "Teton visitation slumps” reported incomplete June visitor numbers posted by Grand Teton National Park. Actual June visitation numbers at the time were not yet compiled, and the park posted a 5-year average as a placeholder. The National Park Service webpage did not clearly label the numbers as an estimate.
