Been twice, not my favorite place

Love all of Yellowstone but this area is my least favorite place. Been twice and it's ok. Still a must see if you've never been.

This was our first stop on our trip and we drove to the top parking lot and walked down the boardwalk first and then back up. Being that we just arrived, it was a little harder of a walk on us than it should have been, as we hadn't adapted to the elevation quite yet. So bring some water and... More

Features here are quite different from thermal areas other places in the park. Travertine formations grow rapidly compared to the formations made from limestone. Hot water dissolves the limestone leaving on the surface, chalk like material. There is rapidly shifting activity here at the hot springs so don't be disappointed if the spring appears to have "died," Don't forget: 1.... More

Near Mammoth Village is the Upper Terrace Drive (less than a mile long). You can see some of the thermal features driving the road but if you have the time, I recommend getting out of your car for a closer view. Our first stop is an overlook with a nice view of the mountains and Mammoth Village. We take some... More

Great views and great pics! The hot springs were amazing and way larger than i thought. Boardwalks all around the place so that you can walk around the place and see almost every inch of the place. We spent about one hour to see it. No dogs permitted and parking is limited but you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I made an overnight stop in Mammoth as part of our July 2014 trip to Grand Teton and Yellowstone. We wanted to have a little more time to explore the area as we only had a couple hours in Mammoth during our 2011 trip and it was a bit cold that day. We checked into our cabin... More

I really liked the way the springs looked. The cascade of pools were beautiful. I think all the photos that people have posted speak for themselves. We also saw a TON of elk in the area. We were staying in the Mammoth Hotel so we were really close, not sure that the Springs would be worth the drive as a... More

If you have never seen these types of hot springs before you might find it interesting but we have seen others elsewhere, other than one section most of it was dried out when we were there. The elk on the laws below are great to see. Waste of time and petrol driving all the way up here.

When we told people we were going to Yellowstone, we heard the same thing over and over again, "You have to go to Mammoth." We were so glad we went to the out of the way north west corner of the park because it was truly amazing. First of all, we saw several Elk and Bison before we made the... More
