It is very small, for some reason, I thought it was a lot bigger than it was, you also cannot get near it for safety reasons. It is okay to go and look at for a couple of minutes and get your photo taken by...More

We came to see the geyser that has been so famous throughout my whole life. I've always read about it, heard about it, seen it in magazines and watched documentaries about it. It was impressive! Especially knowing what's going on beneath it! It's totally worth...More

old faithful is what it says it is. This is one stop that has to be visited in the park. There are very impressive geysers out there but this one is consistent.

Everyone has heard about Old Faithful, so it seems like a natural stop on a visit to Yellowstone National Park. It lives up to the billing. The crowd that gathered there on the summer morning when we visited was not disappointed. The funnier part came...More

The afternoon we arrived it was snowy and blowy, and Old Faithful was mystical and hard to make out properly. The next morning it was bright sunlight, thick snow on th ground, and OF was just exuberant.

You know about it. But you come and see it to be surprised. In Winter (March), it's both rushing out and pushing mist. And the time is so predictable...

I have always come in from the West. There is not great way into that part of the park, but I think the west entrance would be best.

As far as I remember, Madison is the nearest campground. Or you can also look up Norris. It depends on what you wanna do in the old faithful region. If you have a baby, then maybe you don't want to hike a lot? Around Old... More
