Quick reference: 1. Try to go early in the day - Mammoth is entirely in the sun and it gets really hot 2. While not a difficult walk, there are a significant number of stairs and inclines to navigate 3. If you cannot find parking, try the dirt lot next to the dude ranch gate at the southern end of...

At the northern part of the park, this area is a great day activity. Young kids will enjoy viewing the mineral magic and much of this area can be viewed from the car or by short walks on boardwalks. It's amazing to think about how this formation is still forming while you observe it. Stop and get an ice cream... More

It is certainly a place to see when you are at the Yellowstone Park. We climbed the stairs and we were pretty tired but you can actually drive to the top and there is a parking lot (we did not know prior).

This was a beautiful site to see, and not very busy. I'm not sure why, but perhaps people don't make it up this far in the park. It was worth seeing the water flowing over the snow-white rocks that were orange in other areas. It was a nice walk. Allow about an hour here.

Wow, really great formations here. Be sure to catch one of the ranger talks as you'll learn a great deal about what's happening in this very active geological area. A great stop in Yellowstone.

We had both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant, good food, buffet breakfast or a la carte, tried both, both very good. Service was very attentive and the view out the window superb. Dinner was very well presented, good quality and good size portions after a busy day in the park.

This is a great little town in Yellowstone National Park. You can park and stroll up to the boardwalk that takes you all around the springs. They are amazing and the hike up is fun to do. Your little ones will enjoy, too but keep a watchful eye on them. There are some gift shops and a great icecream stand... More

The general store here is excellent. Also, there are 2 or 3 places to eat and they are great! We saw our first deer when we pulled into Mammoth Hot Springs!!!

This is one of the best things one can see and is best in the world. It is alarge complex of hot springs adjacent to Fort Yellowstone. Take the board walk and enjoy the different and ever changing terraces in the Mammoth Hot springs. This beautiful view of the hot springs can be viewed at different locations along the long... More
