Steamboat Geyser

A crowd gathers to watch Steamboat Geyser on Sept. 17 in Yellowstone National Park. The park recorded its third-busiest year in 2018.

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Yellowstone National Park had its third-busiest year on record with more than 4.1 million visitors last year.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports the park in Wyoming had about 1,500 fewer visitors in 2018 than in 2017.

Visitation last year was a 3.5 percent decrease from the park's record-breaking 2016, when it recorded more than 4.2 million guests.

The park says it used numbers from an automated counter that records traffic at the North Entrance to figure out visitation in late December during the partial government shutdown.
