Officials say visitors are flocking to
Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota after flooding cut
into last year's tourism season.
A park report shows that attendance in June approached totals of
2010, the second-busiest year at the park since 1982.
The report says there have been more than 204,000 visits to the
park in the first six months of the year, compared to about 164,000
during the same time a year ago.
Park spokeswoman Eileen Andes says there has been an increase of what she calls
non-traditional visitors, including oil workers touring the area on
their days off.
Officials say ticket sales at the popular Medora Musical
increased 9 percent from last June, and play is up at the nearby
Bully Pulpit Golf Course.
