Loved this area, beautiful springs and geysers. Got to see fountain geyser erupt which was really cool. There's also another small geyser that erupts frequently.

Best part for me was visiting all of the different geyser basins and springs. Beautiful photos to be had at all of them.

The Lower Geyser Basin has some very special hot springs and a pretty consistent little geyser which are definitely worth visiting. Takes about 30 minutes to see it all.

Nice place to stop and sell all the pools. Walkways are very easy to traverse, even with a wheelchair. One of the geysers was going off every couple of minutes. Ranger on duty very informative, on walkway near pools

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 road since we have small children.

I was really excited about this stop. It was all that I expected and maybe a little bit more. The eruptions were fantastic to film and my boys really enjoyed the vastness that the area had to offer. Definitely need to see this attraction.

What I saw in the Lower Basin was amazing. One geyser kept on erupting and it went quite high. I had my camera constantly by me, taking numerous pictures This is the erupting station I guess. This place is quite worthwhile to see, if we...More
