YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — The National Park Service says more than 940,000 people visited Yellowstone National Park in July, which is typically the park’s busiest month for recreation visits.

The number is down about 2 percent from the 962,000 visits recorded in July 2017 but is still the fifth busiest July on record at the nation’s first national park. August is normally the second busiest month in Yellowstone.

So far in 2018, the park has hosted some 2.3 million visitors, which is up slightly from the same period last year.
