Except for a slight dip in May, the first 6 months of 2015 have been busy ones at Dinosaur National Monument. As of June 30th, recreational visits tallied a total of 120,543 – a 12.7% increase over the same time period last year. Much of the increase during the first three months of 2015 could be attributed to the mild winter the area experienced. Visitation also tends to increase in June as many schools close for the summer and families head off on summer trips. Dinosaur saw 55,878 recreational visits in June 2015. July is typically the monument’s peak visitation month, followed by August, June, September and May. Dinosaur is also celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year with a variety of events and activities from now through October. You can get more information by clicking here.
