Yellowstone National Park Sights

Lower Geyser Basin

  • Geological Site

Updated 11/25/2013

Fodor's Review

Shooting more than 150 feet in the air, the Great Fountain Geyser is the most spectacular sight in this basin. Less impressive but more regular is White Dome Geyser, which shoots from a 20-foot-tall cone. You'll also find pink mudpots and blue pools at the basin's Fountain Paint Pots, a unique spot in the park because visitors discover all four hydrothermal features that are in Yellowstone, including fumaroles, mudpots, hot springs, and geysers.
