Mud Geyser is located about 4 miles north of Fishing Bridge, and is part of the Mud Volcano thermal area. Specifically, it is situated south of Mud Cauldron and the Mud Volcano parking area. It was named Mud Geyser by the 1870 Washburn party. They found this, their first true geyser, a slate-colored pool, nearly 200 ft across, displaying violent, muddy eruptions 35 to 40 ft high at six-hour intervals.
     In the early tourist years, Mud Geyser  was a major attraction, typically reached on the 5th day of the stagecoach tour of the park. It has had no reported eruptions since the 1920s, and today's visitors see it as a calm bubbling hot spring.
