This one of the smaller basins in the park and was easy to stop at on my way to Old Faithful. There were not many people there, so I got to really enjoy the beauty in solitude. I will share that the reason it is called Biscuit Basin is because there were formations around the edge of the pools shaped like biscuits, however an earthquake destroyed them. The highlight of visiting was Sapphire Pool, which I will write about in a separate review.

This is a short and easy walk on a boardwalk to see multiple different colorful pools and active geysers. It wasn't too crowded and I think that is why it was one of may favorite stops. The different colors in the area were impressive.

We're so pleased we stopped here. It is less busy than other attractions and well worth seeing with a variety of features including a small geyser which decided to "erupt" as I stood next to it. Such an amazing place.

Easy stop to make and worth the walk around to see several thermal features. The star of the show is the sapphire pool.

It’s a very pleasant walk around the Biscuit Basin on the boardwalk. The pools are all so beautiful. It isn’t the best sight in Yellowstone, but if you have time, definitely make this a stop.

Crazy how blue and clear the water is. The pictures turn out amazing and definitely worth the visit.

We loved walking around Biscuit Basin. There were so many beautiful pools and fun geysers in this area. The boardwalk makes it accessible to all!

This was a nice place to visit. There is a boardwalk for this little hike around these springs. They are very colorful. This was worth stopping by.

Like Black Sand Basin, this is a quick stop just up the road from Old Faithful. At this point we had already seen a few hundred geysers, so we were starting to get a little bored of the geysers. There are some paths to walk in this area.

We finally made it into Biscuit Basin late on the first day. The crowds had largely left and we were able to find a parking spot. As we approached the Basin, there was a nice, picturesque stream to cross. There were a number of geysers and hydrothermal water works to enjoy. The Jewell Geyser and the Shell Spring were both quite active while we were there.
