Bulger Geyser is located in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. Bulger Geyser is 200 feet (61 m) south of Grand Geyser.[2] It erupts frequently, with both major and minor eruptions. As with most geysers, the minor eruptions are the most common. They have a duration of seconds. Major eruptions are infrequent, but they have durations as long as 12 minutes. Either way, the play consists of somewhat vigorous bursting 1-12 feet high.
