On one side of the road is where a lot of steam comes from a large hole in the rocks and below is a bubbling geyser. Across the road is a view of a massive rock wall area that has lots of areas that also release steam. It’s cool to see.
On a side note, just past there up on the tree line on the right going north we saw a bear. This is when I needed a real camera & not just a phone :/ Anytime you see a traffic jam there’s usually some type of animal sighted. So keep a look out!!

Between the sounds of the crashing boiling water against the walls and the steam arising out of the mouth of the cave, it's definitely an eerie place. The smell of sulfur is heavy and you will leave smelling it a bit on your clothes. Super cool and you def feel the dragon vibe. There is a huge walkway that leads you to other mudholes as well. Worth a stop.

Easy stop in between the Lake and Canyon areas. Cool formation with water and smoke coming out of a cave. Crowds were light and parking easy. Take a walk across the street to see bubbling water in the river. Glad we stopped!

Near the Mud Pots. This is a beautiful geological wonder. Just a short walk from the ample parking lot. Well done boardwalk to keep people safe. The name Dragon's Mouth Spring really fits. Does bring back memories of stories and movies about dragons.

The Old Dragon's Mouth Fountain in Yellowstone Park, is like a dragon blowing steam and roaring in a low voice. The First Nations Crow, believed it to be like the snorted steam from an angry bull bison.

The dragon's fire has been extinguished, but there's lots of steam. There is surging water that exists the cave like a lashing dragon's tongue. Due to the amount of steam, it's very hard to get a picture of this spectacular site.

I had a hard time finding the things I wanted to see in yellowstone because Dragon's mouth springs is not on the yellowstone map, I had to go to the visitors center and ask a ranger, Dragons mouth springs is in the Mud Volcano area, this was great! I love to see the mud boiling and steaming. Such a fun trip! Parking is a little difficult in most of the parking lots but if you just wait around for a few minutes you'll get a spot, people dont tend to stay in once place for too long.

Go clockwise on the boardwalk trail as the smell seems to follow the steam from these geysers. Don't look for beauty here, just very different geysers. Yes, the hype relative to the "dragon" is just that, you have to use your imagination for full effect. The trail is steep in places. If I had missed this one I would not have had any regrets. There was a Bison resting on the side of one of the geysers at the top of the boardwalk.

Dragon's Mouth, part of the Mud Volcano area, is a mid-level attraction well worth a quick stop to see.

It's on the smaller of an interconnected two-loop trail and quickly comes into view, so that even those who aren't big walkers and don't intend to take on the longer loop should make the easy effort. As you approach the small cave, the roiling dark water creates a sound which those with imagination can fancy to be - you guessed it - the rumblings of a dragon within. It's quite remarkable, unlike anything else I heard in the park, and an attempt to catch the sound on video really didn't do it justice. Easily the most aurally interesting site I visited.

We just stopped here on our way to eat because it was on the way. The kids thought it was very cool, and they liked it better than most thermal areas in the park. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it, but it is a short stop. We also saw plenty of elk and bison in the area.
