About this spot
Mammoth Hot Springs is the name given to a large area in northern section of the park that includes many thermal features. It is best known for the large travertine terraces that rise on hill above Fort Yellowstone, established in 1891. The fort was built when the army was protecting Yellowstone National Park. The area encompasses the thermal terraces, the Mammoth Hotel and all of Fort Yellowstone. There is a lot to see in this area besides just the terraces including an interesting visitor center.
