About This Spot

The Lion Geyser Group consists of 4 geyserite cones and 3 springs all in close proximity on Geyser Hill. Only two erupt with any regularity and they are Lion Geyser and Little Cub Geyser. Lion Geyser has an unpredictable cycle that can be from 6-50 hours. This is a geyser that if you do see it, it is likely you will be in another section of the geyser basin, because it would be a matter of luck to be nearby during an eruption. Since the geyser sits on a large cone on top of geyser hill, it is easily seen from various locations. The cone itself is impressive from the boardwalk on Geyser Hill and you have a good view of Castle Geyser in the background.
