On a trip out West to the National Parks, Yellowstone and Old Faithful we’re tops on our list. They didn’t disappoint. At the appointed time for the geyser to erupt a couple hundred people sat eagerly awaiting the spectacle. Old Faithful erupted as expected to...More

Cold crisp air and hot steam with brilliant blue skies equals one must see event. Old Faithful is magnificent just because it is an incredible interesting phenomenon. But add the extra feature of winter and it gains a favorite point from this traveler.

We stayed at the Old Faithful Inn, which proved fortuitous for viewing this feature. Everyone in the park wants to see Old Faithful and the crowds were rediculous at virtually all times of day. Best time to see her is after dinner if you want...More

We visited with a tour group and arrived about 10 minutes before the predicted eruption, but Old Faithful’s intervals are stretching and she blew about 5-10 minutes later than expected. Due to the Government shutdown, the visitor center was closed. :( We saw bison from...More

Visited Old Faithful today with friends. The geyser goes off about every 90 minutes. I have seen it in the summer and now in the winter. The winter is a lot less crowded.

It was a cold day in December - the day after Christmas, so there were not many visitors to the park. The Government was shut down, but the tours that run from Jackson still had access to the park. We saw the geyser blow, but...More

We were lucky it performed for us within 5 minutes of arriving and we saw it twice more from a distance as we toured the 6 miles of boardwalks. If you are mobile it is well worth spending a few hours here. We spent 6...More

Still not to be missed, but was running on a hour and twelve minute schedule. If you want a seat show up at least thirty minutes ahead of scheduled eruption. There is a eruption timetable board in the inn.

This consistent geyser is a true delight to behold. The park does a great job of keeping everyone informed as to when the next likelihood the geyser will go off, and it is quite accurate. It is a very relaxing experience and the crowds are...More
