Dragon's Mouth Spring is one of the most famous geothermal features at Mud Volcano area. Dragon's Mouth is a turbulent hot spring with a cavernous mouth. Water sloshes rhythmically in and out of the cavern giving the impression of a large overflow. The place is full of "rotten egg" smell, sloshing, belching, and steaming.

While the smell was a little off-putting, the Dragon's Mouth Springs were insanely cool and a very unique sight. Not the same beauty of the Mammoth Springs or the geyser basins, yet the Dragon's Mouth Springs offered a completely unique experience that really makes you feel as if a dragon is really in there. The smoke, smell, sounds, and sights... More

Throughout the park, there are many opportunities to see geysers and springs but Dragons Mouth Springs is unique and really does look like a dragon. Its a quick stop near the volcano mud pots- stop and take a look

The same path to the Mud Volcano continues to the Dragon's Mouth Springs. Everywhere is snow, except at these hot areas. The short walkway up to the Dragon's Mouth Spring is slippery in the winter, but well worth going to.

This is my favorite geyser. It truly makes you believe any moment from now a fire breathing dragon will appear from the cave. It snorts, it blows, it is convincing. I am going back this summer with relatives that haven't been there before and I can't wait to see their reactions!

Dragon’s Mouth Spring was amazing to see and hear along with the intense Sulphur smells of rotten eggs. The sounds of the gasses mixing and exploding into what we can hear not see, sounds like belching while the splashes of waves roll along out into the pool of the Spring and steam rolls out. There is a nice deck to... More

They loved all of Yellowstone, but really liked the Dragon's Mouth. It's impressive not just to see, but to hear. It's loud and the colors around the spring are very vibrant. It's kind of mesmerizing to watch the waves and steam cascade from the cave and so we all stood and watched it for a long time.

Dragon's mouth looks something out of an old medieval movie. Extremely eerie if you can catch it without the throngs of tourists.

The smell of sulphur is prevalent in the air, but the view and proximity of the trail to the sights is awesome. I walked the trail, but would not suggest for anyone not accustomed to much walking or steps. Enjoyable experience.
