It is great. The view the river next to the geyser, everything was great. We weren't so lucky enough to see it in action but it is worth it to drive to this place. I noticed tough that the address in trip advisor or wrong. Just look it up in Google maps and it will take right to the place.the... More

We went here on a win and we were fortunate enough to see an eruption, albeit a mini one. The eruptions are very irregular and car from very small to gushing 40 feet in the air. The Co2 starts to bubble around the base of the cylinder then it starts to increase in activity, the benefit is that water begins... More

So you've heard of Old Faithful in Yellowstone NP. That geyser is based on water pressure that is increased through heated water and steam build up. Crystal Geyser is a cold water geyser based on the principles of a soda can. It's CO2 that building up inside and and it blows when it can't take anymore. The orange sulphur run... More

Not far off the interstate yet If you like off the beaten path natural areas... the trip in is peaceful and interesting, a desert rock boulder terrain road with nice natural colors . No roped off areas, fees, restrictions, guards... just pure nature. If your a stereotype tourist who needs to be "wooed", forget it. The colors and textures made... More

This is an ice little side trip- the geyser is the result of carbon dioxide and splashes and gurgles constantly. It is right on the river and the water coming out of the geyser flows over the rocks and creates a lovely little waterfall- peaceful and pretty!

Having first heard of this on TripAdvisor, we asked for directions from the little information, rest area stop on the highway. The woman at the info desk drew us a little map and advised us that it probably won't erupt but that the color makes for some interesting pictures if we don't mind the drive on backroads. The geyser itself... More

Fun place to walk around. Geyser only goes off every 15 hrs or more. The colors around the geyser and down to river were beautiful. Very close to townc

Sadly tourists have continued stuffing this geyser with garbage and rocks and it no longer shoots into the sky... let alone does anything but gurgle. Sits next to the Green River, which is a popular spot for people to drop in their boats to head up or down the river.

This is just a pipe sticking out of the ground spewing water, but it's very cool! The water is cool, refreshing, and CARBONATED! It's a hoot to stand under the spray. And the mineral deposits around it are weird and wonderful - great close-up photo ops. I wouldn't drive 100 miles to go there, but if you're in the area,... More

Great attraction even tho not much comes out anymore but the minerals built up around the geyser and down to the river are beautiful. Well worth the time and energy. Make sure you tour the abandoned missile base on the way in!
