Lower Geyser Basin reviews
The Lower Geyser Basin is incredible. The amount of hydrothermal activity here is astounding. This area is definitely worth your time in Yellowstone. more »
There are a bunch of geysers in the area as well as hiking trails. Some unique geysers in the area, but by this point in the park, you've probably seen a few hundred already. more »
Nothing to complain. This place is just amazing. You can see huge smoke coming out of geyser far away. Most geysers are close to each other so you don't need to walk far to see all of them. It also has several hot spring pools. The constant erupting geyser here makes your life easy to take videos
