First Published Jun 15 2014 10:47 am • Last Updated Jun 15 2014 10:47 am

Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. • Visitation to Yellowstone National Park for the month of May and for the first five months of this year has risen almost 6 percent compared to 2013.

The National Park Service reports just over 310,000 recreational visitors to Yellowstone in May and a total of 415,185 for the first five months of 2014. That compares to 293,250 recreational visitors for May 2013 and 392,222 recreational visitors for January through May 2013.

Visitation statistics are calculated by taking the actual number of wheeled vehicles entering the park gates, and using a person-per-vehicle multiplier to calculate the number of monthly recreational visitors.

July is typically the park’s peak visitation month, followed in order by August, June, September, and May.
