I was really excited about this stop. It was all that I expected and maybe a little bit more. The eruptions were fantastic to film and my boys really enjoyed the vastness that the area had to offer. Definitely need to see this attraction.

The wooden trails are easy access from the parking lot. The action makes great video and helps you understand that you are actually standing in the middle of what seems to an amateur to be a semi active volcano

It is right off the road and a short walk and well maintained decks. Has a good variety of sites, including colorful formations and interesting geysers. There are so many amazing things to see in the area, but this is worth a stop.

The lower basin is the place one gets to see the Old Faithful Geyser. There are several hot water springs in lower loop and I found it to be better than upper loop. While we visited in September, there was surprisingly very heavy snowfall on...More
