This has got all the info you need. Plus the times of the geysers eruptions, well for those that are predictable. They got Old Faithful correct to two minutes both times we were there.

Depending on which entrance you take to enter Yellowstone, go to the nearest Visitor Center first before you do anything else. From the south entrance, Old Faithful Visitor Center is closest.
