This is a great sight to see and a must do. It will be crowded in the high season but wasn't too bad when we were there although we had to stay a while to get a good photo.

Best first stop in YNP!

Mammoth Hot Springs is an absolute Yellowstone MUST! We planned to enter at the north entrance just to visit MHS enroute to Canyon Village and we were not disappointed. It takes about two (2) hours to walk about the boardwalks and see the many springs, pools and travertine formations.

We parked about 1/4 mile away in front of the Ranger station and enjoyed a takeout lunch from the restaurant beside the hotel. I’d give the Bison Bratwurst 🌭 4 stars!

Quite impressive

My wife enjoyed this area more than any other we visited. You can walk along walkways through a landscape of terraced springs of many colors.

Really cool!

This is a really beautiful spot. It’s also very crowded - we had a little trouble finding a parking spot.

Especially if you go during the summer, I’d recommend being there early or, if you’re staying inside the park or close by, waiting until the day trippers are starting to leave.

There are nice bathrooms here, too!

Mammoth Hot Springs and the Upper Terrace
Sep 2021
Even in shoulder seasons, the parking area for the lower terrace can be filled to overflowing. If you can find a spot, this is definitely the place to start your tour of one of the park's most interesting features. If not, drive south until you reach the turnoff for the upper terrace. In addition to the parking lot here, there is additional parking available along the loop road. The pictures here were all taken on the upper terrace, or along the loop.

The Mammoth Hot Spring are such a unique portion of the park. I loved the landscape and the terrace-like features that have been created by the hydrothermal activity here! Don't miss Mammoth Hot Springs during your visit to Yellowstone!

Water too hot! Routes are well maintained. Signages are clear. The geology of this location is a must see. The surrounding are well maintained and clean.

Beautiful terraces
Aug 2021
These are beautiful terraces of steam and colors due to the etching of minerals. Walkways are easy to use to see all the features. There is a light sulphur smell.

Love the upper and lower basins and the region

Love the region. The Lower and upper basins are so cool. The area is clean, relaxed and laid back. You can see Elks everywhere. Definitely love this part of the park the most

Uniquely Amazing

These springs are a natural wonder with plenty of picture moments to capture the environment. You can hike the trails from the base to the top or you can “cheat” and view the bottom and then get in your car to reach the top areas.
