  • During our Snowmobile trip with Scenic Safaris we stopped at Biscuit Basin. There was snow everywhere but the pools were gorgeous. Saw one of the small pools erupt just about 4-6 feet above ground. Gr...  more »

  • A must see. Great way to get up close with the hot springs! Parking is tough
  • A nice, less crowded basin with a jewel pool, Sapphire Pool, on the trail. Don't miss West Geyser a bit further from the main loop!
  • Great small walk to see awesome pools and geysers that go off every couple minutes.
  • The Basin itself isn't worth fighting for parking, but the hike to Mystic Falls and the Biscuit Basin overlook are great.
  • Such incredible views! Wow!

Where to stay in Yellowstone National Park

As one of the U.S.'s most popular national parks, Yellowstone provides plenty of options for sleeping within its boundaries. Choose from lodges, inns, cabins, hotels, motels, and campgrounds throughout the park. Most of the structured accommodations lie in the park's most-visited areas, such as Mammoth Hot Springs, Tower Falls, Old Faithful Geyser, and Yellowstone Lake. Staying on the northern side of the lake puts you right in the heart of the park, making it relatively convenient to visit other areas. Resorts, lodges, and guest ranches line the road just outside the park's east entrance, and a cluster of motels and hotels fills the town of West Yellowstone near the west entrance. You can also opt for lodges and inns to the north in Gardiner, Montana, or find nearly every type of accommodation to the south in Jackson, Wyoming. Staying outside the park is fine if you plan to drive through in a day and catch the highlights, but you'll want to spend at least one night inside the park if you plan to explore it more thoroughly.
