  • In my opinion, this is a better spot than Grand Prismatic - granted the latter is an amazing thing but this has some of the same with lots fewer people.  more »

  • Fun easy walk around the basin and some of the geyser basins are so clear. Definitely a good stop and if you're lucky you might see some fish jumping out of the river. 😉
  • Parking lot is small however it’s a nice place to visit if you are in yellow stone. We enjoyed as a family and have some mesmerized memories of this beautiful basin which rare to find nearby neighborhood. Be cautious with kids.
  • Short walk on a beautiful boardwalk. The pools were stunning and there was an amazingly knowledgeable park ranger walking through ready to answer questions. Small parking area. For sure worth a stop!
  • Very nice area and great trail to enjoy hiking. End of May to mid June not so crowded as weather can change quickly. Great views at top of cliffs while hiking.
  • Nice, but once you've seen one basin and one geyser, it feels like you've seen them all.
