Watched Old Faithful erupt and then walked paved road north(grizzley bear sightings posted) and came back onto boardwalk at Crested Pool. We were making our way to Daisy Geyser's eruption. Please make the extra effort to see Morning Glory Pool. We understand it's not as blue as it originally was but it was still spectacular. The entire boardwalk is worth... More

There are so many Geysers its unbelievable. Some are bubbling all the time and others go off at different intervals. Strong smell of sulphur and lots of clouds of steam. There is a safe walkway through the geysers and youi can choose how far you want to walk. Look lout for the various colours surrounding some geysers.

The Upper Geyser Basin is home to Old Faithful but there are so many more geysers, springs etc., to see and explore. This is great place to see a true natural wonder and should not be missed and give yourself plenty of time to explore. The Upper Basin has the largest concentration of geysers with some also famous ones like,... More

My mom and I decided to make this our last stop on our first day in the park. We were there for sunset and boy was it an amazing sight to see. We both loved the amount of action in the area from the pots to the geysers and the pools. Very impressive! Really think this is something you should... More

This is really one cool place to stop and look around for some neat geysers. I was amazed at the different types that you could see here. It doesn't take long and would be worth taking time to see this one.

The Upper Geyser Basin is located above the Old Faithful area, which is nice because Old Faithful is what draws the crowds. The Upper Geyser Basin area is much less crowded, has some geysers that spout with regularity and others that are less predictable, and has beautiful pools of all kinds of color and shape. One could easily spend a... More

Easy trail/loop gets you up close and personal to geysers and mud pots. Parking lot has pull through spaces and the short 1/3 mile walk to the geysers is well maintained and wide. Large bin at the end of the parking lot was convenient to drop rubbish before departing.
