We have a collection of webcams courtesy of the Yellowstone Park Service that provide views in and around Mammoth Hot Springs, Mount Washburn, Old Faithful and the North Entrance. If you can’t come see and see the park in person, you can view the current conditions online.
Watch a real-time video eruption of Old Faithful Geyser, wandering wildlife, and other geyser eruptions in the Upper Geyser Basin.
If you entered Yellowstone through the historic Roosevelt Arch, this view from the north entrance station may look familiar to you. Morning views on this webcam are spectacular, and we anticipate the scene during the winter months to be amazing when the morning sun touches Electric Peak. Look for wildlife — elk, bison, and pronghorn can be seen grazing in the foreground. Occasionally you may see the top of oversize vehicles like RVs, tour buses, and delivery trucks as they stop at the entrance station. With a quick refresh rate of 30 seconds, those shots should be few.
Please note that the webcam faces south, so the view may appear washed out in the morning.The webcam is pointed to look through two panes of historic glass of the old headquarters for the Corp of Engineers (dates to 1903), and we have done our best to sharpen the view. As leaves drop during the fall and the trees remain bare all winter, the view of the buildings and their red roofs will be more noticeable. You may also notice construction activity in the view as the Albright Visitor Center is currently undergoing rehabilitation.
In the foreground of this view, you can also see the parade grounds for historic Fort Yellowstone. It was the focal point of daily life at the fort. Each day began early with a bugler sounding Reveille. Gradually, the fort came to life and another bugle call brought horse-mounted soldiers trotting onto the field for the flag-raising. Assignments were announced, and the troops headed out to patrol the Mammoth Hot Spring Terraces or other nearby attractions. Those remaining behind assumed the never-ending task of caring for the post’s horses. At dusk, the bugler called all troopers back to the field for the lowering of the flag, and the day was concluded with a cannon firing from the top of Capitol Hill. Taps was played as lights winked out and quiet settled over the fort.
At the top of Dunraven Pass at an elevation of 10,243 feet, is Mt. Washburn. The views are spectacular. It is a six-mile hike round trip to the top and back. A fire lookout is stationed at the top of Washburn and the park uses this camera in the summer to track fires during the summer season. When there is no fire activity, the camera points northeast toward the mountains in the distance. Hikers and bighorn sheep can often be seen on the trail in the foreground.
This webcam on Mount Washburn normally captures a birds-eye view of the park facing south. In this view, you can see the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley, and on clear days, the Tetons in Grand Teton National Park. During the summer season, however, the webcam is often repositioned by the fire lookout who watches to see if that storm in the distance will ignite a fire. In winter the steam from Washburn Hot Springs is readily visible in the foreground.
