Old Faithful is always faithful and there are places to sit while you wait for it to go off. You can also view it from the lodge as well.

We enjoyed seeing this famous geyser, even tho the 90 minute "schedule" was somewhat off and we had to wait a while longer than expected. Very impressive. And afterwards, we took the boardwalk up the Upper Geyser Trail. Nothing like it.

Really something to see! It goes "off" every 90 minutes and everyone is waiting for it. Phenomenal sight. You MUST go there!

The majesty and power of this place ruined by the vast number of of family's on holiday who feel the urge to shout at each other from the moment they waddle out of their SUVs until they waddle back to their SUVs to drive off to tick off the next "neat" natural wonder. If you're of the same opinion as... More

Old Faithful is a national landmark with more than 3 million visitors each year. Sometimes it seems like they are all there at the same time. The visitor center is new and awsome.

The guest was amazing to see but if you take the self guided tour through the maze of boardwalks over all the hot springs, be aware if you have small children... There are no handrails. Only the boards. Small children could fall into the springs if left unattended. I was amazed by how many inattentive parents I saw just letting... More

Went on a rainy Saturday which was probably a blessing in disguise as there was no traffic and the crowd was small which allowed me to get some great photos. This display is truly remarkable and all you can do is marvel at the work of Mother Nature.

We watched Old Faithful twice... one time erupted much higher than the other. Fun to watch both times! Puts you in awe of nature's power.

Old Faithful Geyser was faithful once again. We arrived and looked at the posting that told when the next eruption should happen. It was right on schedule.
