Dragon's Mouth Spring is a hot spring located in the Mud Volcano area. It has a cavernous mouth hence the name. It's a worthwhile stop on the Mud Volcano boardwalk.

The heaving waters that snort and spit make you believe there's a dragon inside--our kids were absolutely enchanted here. Quick stop, not too far to walk from the parking lot.

Like many areas of Yellowstone, this area of thermal features requires some hiking - including some pretty steep climbs. But the bubbling mud, steaming cauldrons, and algal mats are fascinating. This stop gives you a good idea of just how volatile much of the park...More
