2012 Sees Sharp Increase in Visitors to Glacier National Park

After a relatively dismal year in 2011, Glacier National Park saw a sharp rebound in the total number of visitors in 2012. This past year saw a total of 2,162,034 visitors to the park, which represents a 16.4% increase over the prior year.

The 2012 year saw the 4th highest number of visitors in Glacier history. 1983 still holds the record when just over 2.2 million visitors entered the park.

Here's a look at annual visitation trends since Glacier became a national park in 1911:
