Glacier National Park Sets Record High Visitation in 2015

According to data collected by the National Park Service Visitor Use Statistics website, Glacier National Park has set another new record high for total visitation. The park set a record for highest annual visitation counts in 2014 when 2,338,528 visitors were recorded. However, that figure was broken last year when the park recorded 2,366,056 visits in 2015, a 1.2% increase over the prior year.

With the National Park Service celebrating its centennial this year, my guess is that Glacier will see even more park visitors in 2016.

Here's a graphical look at visitation counts since Glacier became a national park in 1911:


If you plan to visit Glacier this upcoming year, please note that our hiking website also offers a wide variety of accommodation listings and other things to do to help with all your vacation planning.
