I'm sure I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn't snowing

This is a dramatic site that requires a lot of walking and climbing. It was cold and snowing when we were there which hid some of the color in the rocks and made it difficult to... read more

This is a dramatic site that requires a lot of walking and climbing. It was cold and snowing when we were there which hid some of the color in the rocks and made it difficult to get around. I plan to visit it again if possible when it isn't snowing

The entire complex is spotless, the staff is all fabulous and the natural beauty is unequaled. The General Store is a gem, the hotel is gorgeous and all in a location historically significant to our country. The wild life, the animals never cease to amaze.

The springs have been running for centuries and the travertine and geyserite left behind make for beautiful pictures. The boardwalks go all around the area to give perspective from all sides.

The springs were a little on the dry side, due to the drought being experienced in the western states. Still, the terraces and mounds were fascinating to walk around. A town sits adjacent to the area and is the oldest in the park.

Mammoth Springs are the largest of all springs and geysers in Yellowstone area. They are visible if you are coming from Tower Junction towards them. The structures of geysers are quite different from other springs. One looks like a marble staircase, then there is a Liberty cone. The view of the Springs is better from Lower Terrace area but the...

Great site and easy to get to. Walk up to the Minerva spring, its a few hundred yards, it's well worth it. The layers of the travertine look Frozen and are beautiful!

the hot tub was surrounded by a privacy fence that offers little privacy. Our hottub and room were viewable from the hotel upper floor, the fence has a gap at floor level that is easily seen through, the hottub itself was in disgusting shape (rotting leafs under the cover, dead bugs not scooped out of the water, the water had...

There are terraces and a few weak hot springs still gurgling up some water but this area looks like something out of an apocalyptic movie where everything's gone to desert. The trails too are rather steep with many steps and the one area designated for wheel chairs would be extremely treacherous for an actual person to use in a wheel... More

Lovely sight to see... It was a quick stop for us, that's why we didn't know if there is any trail leading to higher ground viewing of this hot spring, but we were quite impressed seeing it from the front. But we got excited seeing Elks roaming around grazing in the nearby field..

Probably this the only place in the Yellowstone Park I felt disappinted. We saw some terraces with small hot springs. Some weak geysers.
