    The Firehole Lake drive can be used only with PW. The big highlight is the great fountain geyser. Who caught the time is rewarded with a spectacular eruption. Also there is some beautiful colored hot springs and more geysers. If you have enough time, should make the detour.

    Yellowstone is always crowded it seems, but this little road was great! Very few people and you can get very close to the pools and geysers. It is a one-way drive and hooks right back up to the main r...  more »

    It is not very exciting as a Lake, and I will tell you more, if you think it's peaceful to sit in peace not ideal, there are many people who will stop to watch it.

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.
