Zion National Park breaks record for visitors in a month

SPRINGDALE, Utah — Over 670,000 people visited Zion National Park in June, breaking the record for most visitors in a month.

That shatters the previous June 2019 record of roughly 595,000. June of last year saw only 377,000 visitors, due to the pandemic.

Canyonlands National Park (110,000 visitors) and Capitol Reef National Park (190,000 visitors) also saw their busiest June ever.

Crowding is something that Utah National Parks have grown to get used to.

This summer, it has been a common occurrence for visitors to be denied entry into Arches National Park in Moab. The park website says trailhead parking lots often fill up before 7:30 a.m., inducing restricted access that can last 3-5 hours.
