Rocky Mountain N.P.

Record visitation in 2014 at Rocky Mountain National Park

ESTES PARK – Rocky Mountain National Park received its highest annual visitation in 2014. At the end of October the park had already received record visitation. After including November and December visitation statistics the park received 3,434,754 visitors for 2014. The highest visitation prior to 2014 was in 2000, when the park received 3,380,044 visitors.

Determining visitation is a difficult and imprecise effort. Visitation statistics are reliably good estimates and help park managers see overall trends. Fall visitation, particularly on weekends, continues to increase at Rocky Mountain National Park.

Many other national parks in the Rocky Mountain West also had increases in visitation last year. Rocky began its Centennial Celebration in September of 2014, which will continue through September of 2015. Other parks celebrating their Centennial Anniversaries have experienced increases in visitation as well.
