  • This has always been my favorite geyser since I was a kid. Unfortunately, my parents always thought it was too far of a walk. Now that I'm grown up, "I" make the decisions. It's well worth the walk.
  • Completely beautiful! The coloration is amazing, from dark orange to brilliant blue. It really does look like it does in pictures! Bit if a walk (or bike) to get there, but worth it, and you'll see fascinating thermal features along the way. It's a real shame people throw trash in it--it changes the color and makes it less interesting. As an extra bonus, there's a bathroom and picnic table near the pool.
  • This is an amazing pool. We came 9 years ago and it had a lot more color in it than it did this time. The park sign said it lost some color due to people tossing trash and other items into it. It's still great to look at, but not as colorful as it once was. Some of the greens around the edge have turned to blues. Now it looks more like some of the other springs/pools.
  • Totally worth the easy walk out to see it. Sadly stupid people keep throwing things in there which is making the pool change colors. Please don't throw anything in the Yellowstone Springs people.
  • This was one of my favorite spots in the geyser section. It is definitely worth walking out here to see.

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.
