The Old Faithful Geyser is a must see Yellowstone attraction. It is easy to find out when the next eruption will be as it is posted around the area. When we were there it was every 90 minutes. There is bench seating around the area...More

If you go to Yellowstone, you must see Old Faithful. This is something I had always wanted to see and the experience did not disappoint. We watched in the afternoon with a large group and early the next morning with very few others. The amount...More

If you can only see one feature of the park stop here. You will never see anything like this anywhere.

One of the biggest Geysers of the Park. They have time schedules for all larger geysers when they erupt, give or take 10 minutes. So you don't have to wait among the many tourists.

Park Rangers have predictions for when Old Faithful will erupt every 90 minutes or so, down to +/- 10 minutes. This attraction is better during the day than after nightfall, between mid-to late September, when my visit was made.

Even though it's the most amazing geyser, it the most predictable. Right next to the famous and pretty old faithful inn

Stayed at Old Faithful Snow Lodge and saw eruption twice without a long wait. Times are posted and eruption is every 75 min +/- 10 min. There are boardwalks and other geysers to see within walking distance..morning glory is worth the walk!

We stayed in a nearby hotel so knew when the Geyser would blow. Was amazing to see. Great enthusiasm from the crowd too.

I would take the trail to each geyser starting at Old Faithful. It is a 4 mile loop total and ends at the Castle Geyser. There are places to cut it short if 4 miles is too much for you.
