A bucket list item that didn’t disappoint. We downloaded the NPS app for Yellowstone (great content and its free). We arrived 30 minutes before the estimated eruption and sat on the edge of the boardwalk. There is plenty of seating to accommodate a substantial crowd....More

I have seen this geyser erupt 4 times now on only 2 trips. By the time we got from the parking lot it was erupting and when it was done we went inside, ate and when we were finished it was erupting again, so it...More

While it seems a little commercial, with the bench seating and the waiting for a particular time, it is exciting to wait and see Old Faithful make its show. The information center and gift shop have information about the geyser, and pictures are always a...More

We were fortunate to stay at the cabins by Old Faithful so we watched it erupt many times. I had goose bumps to actually see it in person. Has great seating and different places you can view it from

This is an American icon that you must see in person! It is as dependable as they come and has to be seen.

The nice thing about Old Faithful is that the Visitor Center gives an approximate time for the next "blow" and they are spot on usually. We packed a picnic lunch and there is a nice shady area under tall trees, with fallen trees to sit...More

This is one of the best places in the lake to watch geysers and other volcanic phenomena. There is a long wooden trail along the different geological and volcanic sites. It deserves the visit. Geysers periodically burst out. Then a lot of people congregate in...More

You can’t go to Yellowstone and not see Old Faithful. This is fun to see and goes off regularly. There is a lot here as well. Food, bathrooms, lodging and of course the gift shops.

If you want to see 'Old Faithful' plan on getting there early of you will have to stand. There are seats but they are limited and it fills up quickly. I arrived about 45 minutes early, only because I didn't really know the timing. If...More

Awesome to see. It's every bit as spectacular as we heard. Stop for breakfast or lunch at the Old Faithful Inn if your timing allows.
