This is such a fantastic place, top tip is make sure you have read information on the area, there are lots of pamphlets available in the tourist information centres which help you understand what you are looking at. This area is truly amazing.

A walk around the Upper Geyser Basin is a must if you're visiting the Old Faithful area. The walk is lengthy, but not strenuous and can be done by people of all ages and physical abilities. There are many varieties of geothermal features to see...More

The entire Yellowstone Park is an out-of-this-world experience, but the Upper Geyser Basin is surreal. Visitors should not miss it. Plan to spend time learning about the geyser formation, and also admiring their beauty.

This area is really spread out and it takes a lot longer to get from one point to another. Check in the Visitor Center to get times for possible eruptions. Old Faithful was not faithful for us time wise, but while we were waiting, we...More

Some experienced visitors say that mid winter is the best time as few visitors at that time and everything will be via ski! Plus the park is even more enchanting in winter!
