2013 SD Park Visitation Numbers Might Be Skewed

February 18, 2014, 7:40 AM

2013 SD Park Visitation Numbers Might Be Skewed
YANKTON, SD -

The assistant director of South Dakota's Parks and Recreation Division says a new traffic counter system might have influenced record visitation numbers last year.

Bob Schneider says officials will be monitoring to see what the traffic counters come up with during their second season of use. He says there will then be a new base to move forward with.

The state Department of Game, Fish and Parks says there were 7.8 million park visitors statewide in 2013, a record for the second straight year. One of the biggest draws was Lewis and Clark Recreation Area near Yankton, where visitation was up about 20 percent, to 1.2 million.

Schneider says he wonders if the jump was really that much.
