Interesting Geothermal Feature
Sep 2021
This is another fascinating feature of Yellowstone. Located near the Hayden Valley, it's another look into the phenomenal geological history of Yellowstone although it's much different in appearance than the geysers and springs.

Nice Little Stop
Aug 2021
This was a neat little stop. It does not take long to see everything here. It was neat to see the mud bubbling. There is a boardwalk around the area, so it is easy to walk.

Not so much this is nice or pretty. This mud volcanoes is different from others. Talk about Yellowstone diversity, this is definitely one of the different springs, geysers you ought to see.

Mud Volcano
Aug 2021 • Couples
The Mud Volcano was quite active. People are able to walk on a boardwalk to see the various sites. Although the mud is not very colorful, it’s awesome to see the bubbling gray matter.

Definitely Mud
Jul 2021
I was expecting the mud to be a bit more viscus but still interesting to see. Be prepare for a possible long trip out as the main bison valley is right before this stop. Plenty of parking.

Interesting

There are some trails to hike in this area, but the two main attractions are the Mud Volcano and Dragon's Mouth Springs, which are next to each other. As the name suggests, this geyser spews a muddy mixture instead of the clear waters throughout most of the rest of the park. It is at the edge of Hayden Valley and also near Sulphur Cauldrons on the east side of the park.

Mud Volcano Area
Jul 2021
The Mud Volcano area in Yellowstone is super interesting. Other places in the part you'll see the bubbling water and in this area it's the bubbling mud. We even encountered a bison laying right next to the mud volcano on this visit. There is a quite a bit of area to explore, so it's up to you how much you want to walk around in this area. You also can easily visit the Sulfur Caldron in the same area, which of course makes the entire area smell.

Interesting area
Jun 2021
This was one of the first areas we saw after entering Yellowstone National Park from the East entrance. We walked the boardwalk and took in the various mud pots. We enjoyed it very much and it was a short stop.

Great place
May 2021
Thought this was an awesome place. It is a little different then seeing just the normal geysers with water. Liked the mix of the water and mud. I really enjoyed seeing this and it is pretty easy to get around the area.

Stinky Mud
Aug 2020 • Family
We stopped for a few minutes to stretch our legs and check out the mud spring. Nothing spectacular however another cool different geological feature in the park. Plenty of parking and a short easy trail to walk.
