The trip to Yellowstone was a long desired destination. For a family, flights are inconvenient and expensive from Indiana, so we had to have a time where we had at least 2 weeks free from work and school. Driving there is a chore...it is a long, long way in a car. Once there, the biggest problem is the crowds. It... More

What an amazing experience. I've gone several times to see the eruption of this incredible geyser, and I highly recommend it. Mother Nature puts on quite a show on a regular clock. It gets crowded so get there early and plan on taking in the scene. It's absolutely worth the wait. On my most recent trip, there was a buffalo... More

Viewing areas had benches, and there were facilities and dining options on site. Obviously, the geysers will do what the geysers will do, but it was pretty regular. I don't know if I would brave the crowds for a second showing but it was nice.

My first memory of Old Faithful is in cartoons viewed while I was a youngster. The real thing definitely doesn't disappoint! Definitely take a full day to visit Old Faithful and the many surrounding hot spring pools when visiting Yellowstone National Park!

Stopped @ Old Faithful as part of an all-day snowmobile tour. Bison grazing near Old Faithful, packed a lunch & ate in the warm yurt. Lunch is also offered in the cafeteria. The geyser erupts every 90 minutes (give or take a few minutes).

Not much to say about Old Faithful - glad we saw it and that it was on time :) But otherwise, it is not one of the more interesting scenes of Yellowstone. Grand Canyon of Yellowstone is much higher on our list.

Arrived at Old Faithful in the morning 10:30am, the sign said next eruption at 10:45am. We rushed to the site already filled with visitors. 10:45 came and went. Actually another 20 minutes went by before it decided to blow. There were also many little eruptions before the big one, so patience is needed! However, it was a beautiful July morning... More
