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

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.

The wooden trails are easy access from the parking lot. The action makes great video and helps you understand that you are actually standing in the middle of what seems to an amateur to be a semi active volcano

This was our first geyser stop coming in from the West Entrance. A spectacular way to start your visit at Yellowstone. Easy to park and get to the walkways. Accessible to all and typical of the fabulous things you'll see on your visit to Yellowstone....More
