Visiting Old Faithful in Yellowstone is an experience that all from age 10 up, will enjoy. It should be a part of the hole nature experience of Yellowstone NP. It is the central attraction, but by no means the only attraction. It's eruptions are spectacular.
You can't visit this area and not see Old Faithful, you are guaranteed to see the geyser erupt, there is a board which gives you the times. The center is well worth visiting too, look up at the lampshades, they are fabulous!
On a trip out West to the National Parks, Yellowstone and Old Faithful we’re tops on our list. They didn’t disappoint. At the appointed time for the geyser to erupt a couple hundred people sat eagerly awaiting the spectacle. Old Faithful erupted as expected to...More
Cold crisp air and hot steam with brilliant blue skies equals one must see event. Old Faithful is magnificent just because it is an incredible interesting phenomenon. But add the extra feature of winter and it gains a favorite point from this traveler.
We stayed at the Old Faithful Inn, which proved fortuitous for viewing this feature.
Everyone in the park wants to see Old Faithful and the crowds were rediculous at virtually all times of day. Best time to see her is after dinner if you want...More
We visited with a tour group and arrived about 10 minutes before the predicted eruption, but Old Faithful’s intervals are stretching and she blew about 5-10 minutes later than expected.
Due to the Government shutdown, the visitor center was closed. :(

the geyser erupts st certain times.if you go to the visitor center you can see a board that they have the "predicted" geyser erupting time ...we witnessed one and it was spectacular...loved it..must must visit place in the NP
It was a cold day in December - the day after Christmas, so there were not many visitors to the park. The Government was shut down, but the tours that run from Jackson still had access to the park. We saw the geyser blow, but...More

if you are only staying at old faithful, there are so many walks and trails to see other geysers. all are so different. they have a rangers walk to talk about everything there and take you sight seeing. There is an auditorium to see some pretty cool films about Yellowstone and a museum. Plenty of areas to eat. You will have to enjoy walking to see all of the beautiful view points. And of course old faithful goes off every 90 minutes. Additionally there are tours to take you out to all other areas. If you have a car, you can do old faithful in the morning or evening.. go for an early morning walk along one of the trails then jump into the car and go see grant village west thumb was absolutely amazing, the grand canyon the mud volcanos, norris geyser basin and of course the spectacular prismatic geyser which was by far the best ever but be prepared to park and walk a bit of a distance. We did this all in one day with no stress. Its pretty much a drive in a circle and we were really only out for about 5 hours.. you can then come back and watch the old faithful go off and have dinner at one of the restaurants. absolutely loved it and so worth going and seeing it all

We have never stayed at in the park proper. The lodge at old faithful is usually booked a year 8n advance but you could check. It is expensive. West Yellowstone is a good option. We stayed at the Clubhouse Inn. MIT was less expensive than most other places and extremely nice. Plan an hour to get to the attractions, less for the ones closer to the west entrance. We didn’t find the drive a problem.
