  • In the lower geyser basin, sinter terraces, colorful hot springs, geysers and mud pots are in a confined space. A good place to get an overview. Sometimes some of the audience crowded, visit if possible rather in the morning or in the evening.

  • We also saw the lower geyser basin from the car. Traffic between Old Faithful and Madison is very congested from all the visitors getting out at the different check points. We enjoyed the view on the ...  more »
  • The amount of steam that pulls out this geyser is truly awesome, perfect to keep warm during a cold day.

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.
