    When the mud volcano, the Yellowstone shows another face of volcanism: Sulphur Springs, mud pots, hot and sour springs... This region is only conditionally suitable for sensitive noses. However, also these forms belong to the volcanism and are worth a visit. Those who prefer nice, clean, and aesthetically like, should leave this part of the Yellowstone rather left.

    This is just a fascinating place. The smell, sound, and steam are really great! Very odd and other worldly. Some is wheelchair accessible, but there are steep steps on the right side. If you can, do t...  more »

    This is one of my favorite short walks in all of Yellowstone. Our kids loved it.

    Beautiful boiling mud pond. Easy to access. But watch out bisons are everywhere. Worth to see it.

    Very interesting part of Yellowstone. My fiancée and I tried to hike every trail we could in this area and were not disappointed. It may have just been out timing but there did not seem to be as big a crowd in this area. Obviously be prepared for a bit of a smell :)

    Less crowded thermal feature than the geyser basins. The drive through Hayden valley has great animal viewing especially bison

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.
