Explore Mammoth Hot Springs

Wyoming Mammoth Hot Springs

Added by Layne Allison

These natural hot springs are absolutely magnificent yet unique. Just off the road and located near a popular tourist town this makes for an awesome day trip. Easy parking, bathrooms and restaurants nearby make for an easy and family friendly trip. 

These natural hot springs are crazy cool and very rare, which makes for an unforgettable trip. The hot springs are located right off of highway 89. With easy parking, restrooms and a town less than half a mile up the road this location is very convenient. The area provides boardwalks which makes viewing the springs close and personal. It is HIGHLY ADVISED TO NOT WANDER OFF THE BOARDWALKS, the ground is very unstable in the area. This area is very populated with Elk and predators of the Elk which influence the Elk to wander and chill in the local town for safety. 

A camera is an essential for this trip. You won't want to forget this experience. During the summer it can get hot so LOTS of WATER and SUN SCREEN. During the winter seasons it can get chilly so bring layers, rain jacket for sporadic weather change and an umbrella.

How to Get There

Very Odd, in a Good Way

The springs were pretty darn cool. It's pretty interesting to see what bubbles up from under the Earth. We walked around here for about an hour, after that we got kinda bored.

Great option during the offseason when much of the park is closed

I visited Yellowstone in March and most of the heart of the park was still closed, but Mammoth was open and provided a great place to explore for the day. Be sure to visit the trails above the main springs as they are less frequented by tourists and still very interesting
