Great Smoky Mountains National Park Sees Increase in Visitors in 2006

Despite a slow start and a down summer, the 2006 year saw a 2% increase in visitors to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There were over 9.4 Million visitors to the park last year. This can most likely be attributed to a very mild winter and the fact that even though gas prices are high, Gatlinburg and other areas surrounding the Great Smoky Mountains National Park are in close proximity to some very large populations. Not only did daytime visitors increase but also those who enjoy the national park during the night – the campers. Both front-country and back-country campers increased in numbers from 2005 to 2006.
