Tourism In Natrona County
In 2022, we welcomed 746,310 overnight visitors who spent 349.6 million, up 12.7% from 2021. That 349.6 million in direct visitor spending powered 2,810 full and part-time jobs, (right here at home!), and $99 million in earnings. Tourist spending also contributed $16.8 million in state and local taxes. Each household in Natrona County would have to write a check for $510 to make up the $16.8 million in taxes collected from tourists while they’re here.
