Near the north entrance of the park, you'll find Mammoth Hot Springs, which has been said to look like a cave that's been turned inside out. If you decide to enter through the west entrance, located just across the Wyoming and Idaho borders in West Yellowstone, you'll be a quick drive away from several geyser basins, which include both geysers and hot springs.
