It is nice to check with lodge for the approximate time of geyser's eruprion. Most of the time during the day is this place really crowded but we stoped by around sunset hours what was better. Next to the geyser is neat bord walk with...More

Get the NPS Geyser app to see when the geysers are erupting. There are at least five geysers besides Old Faithful that are predictable. Riverside is my favorite, but Castle is awesome, too. We saw many geysers erupt in the three days we were here...More

There is so much more here than Old Faithful. I hadn't realized that there were so many thermal features. You can fill an entire day in the Upper Geyser Basin seeing all the hot pools and geysers and going up to the observation point. We...More

Spectacular other wordly experience. Bring your camera. It’s unlike anything on earth. Be prepared to walk around the various basins and geysers and experience the diversity of these gems.

A fantastic collection, varied types and sizes, something going off all the time. You have a choice of several ways to walk around -- boardwalks, roads, sidewalks. You must see this, and not just Old Faithful which is here too.

These geysers were so beautiful, the colours amazing, worth the walk to see them. It was quite a busy area for visitors, so go early if you can.

What a great stop! If you have any sensitivity to smells, make sure to bring a mask, as the smell of sulfur is quite potent. But being able to walk along side the boiling and steaming pools is incredible!

If you can time yourself to see Grand Geyser go off (every 6 hours or so), it's much more impressive than Old Faithful, and you sit around 20 feet away!

Our visit here was a bit rushed because of snow that day. There are so many geysers. I wish we could have been there when Steamboat erupted.

You'll walk right next to geyser pools filled with colorful activity. We walked through several geyser blooms that will fog your glasses and your camera lens. Slight sulfur smells in places. Stunning!

Hi Daniel: This is kind of a loaded question. That is if you are to go directly from Old Faithful up to the Morning Pool (near the end of the upper geyser basin) it is 1.5 miles. Depending on how often you stop, how fast... More
