Returning to Yellowstone this year warranted a visit to the North Geyser Basin -- the star attraction is of course Old Faithful. This year I took in the standard viewing from the boardwalk during the day but also ventured up to Observation Point to watch...More

how can anyone visit yellowstone and not see old faithful. Yes it was on time but best part every time it was little different in strength and duration, so watch it more than once

The best times, in my opinion, to visit Old Faithful is in the morning and late afternoon. Although, it erupts approximately every 44 to 125 minutes. It was named in 1870 during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition and was the first geyser in the park to receive...More

My husband and I really enjoyed seeing Old Faithful, the food and drinks at Old Faithful Inn, and The Visitors Center are recommended as well.

There are benches and s boardwalk that keep visitors s safe distance from the geyser. Bring your camera and after it erupts visit the other steam and boiling pots that surround Old Faithful. Ask a park ranger for the time it goes off.

After having lunch, we walked around the Old Faithful grounds, which has beautiful scenery, waiting almost an hour for the next eruption and it’s a beautiful thing to see but, IMO, I was expecting to see more, and didn’t feel like it was worth waiting...More

Our group visit included a stop at Old Faithful and it was well worth waiting for. Upon arrival, we checked inside the Old Faithful Lodge to see when Old Faithful was scheduled to erupt again. We had enough time to visit the gift shop and...More
