The number of people who visited NWT campgrounds was up this season, according to the territorial government.

As parks close for the season today, the territory’s tourism department says more than 24,000 visited parks in the territory this year.

By September 1, NWT Parks had already exceeded total revenue from 2014 based on online sales alone.

“It is great to see that NWT Parks are a sought-after destination both by locals looking for a weekend get-away and visitors travelling from around the world,” said the tourism minister, David Ramsay, in a statement.

The department says full statistics will be released later this fall.
