Yellowstone National Park in the United States – the country’s oldest national park - attracted a total of approximately 4.02 million visitors in 2019, down from the previous year's total of 4.12 million.

 U.S. National Park Service 

Established in 1872 and located predominantly in Wyoming, Yellowstone remains one of the country’s most popular national parks, ranking sixth in terms of visitor numbers in 2018. However, with over 11 million recreational park visits in 2018, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, straddling the border between North Carolina and Tennessee, was by far the most visited national park in the United States. All national parks in the U.S. are managed, protected and presented by the National Park Service, an agency of the U.S. federal government. There were approximately 86 million visitors to national parks in the U.S. in 2018.
