Number of visitors to Olympic National Park in the U.S. 2008-2018 This statistic shows the number of recreational visitors to Olympic National Park in the United States from 2008 to 2018. The number of visitors to Olympic National Park amounted to approximately 3.1 million in 2018. After five years of year-on-year growth, visitor numbers at Olympic National Park dropped by around 300,000 in 2018, totaling 3.1 million for that year.
Olympic National Park

The park is situated just to the west of Seattle, covering the majority of the peninsula between Seattle and the Pacific Ocean. The park was originally declared a national monument by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1909, and was designated as a national park by Congress in 1938. It has also been declared as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations. In 2019, it was the ninth-most visited national park in the U.S, however visitor numbers are far behind the two most-visited national parks - Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Grand Canyon National Park.

Economic Benefits of national parks

National parks not only provide aesthetic and environmental benefits for the community, but also economic benefits. The sale of entry fees, tours, accommodation, food & beverages, and souvenirs associated with national parks provide direct economic benefits to the surrounding community. The quality of infrastructure within and surrounding national park is also therefore important, as different types of accommodation will often generate different levels of spending.
