Green River is a decent base for a wide variety of activities like hiking and rafting that can burn a whole day at a time. For something more unique and less time consuming, a vist to Crystal Geyser is worthy and fits the bill. Word is that this man made geyser no longer erupts with the frequency and intensity of...

Even without experiencing it blowing – and it seems it isn’t doing it right now, even though all the information says twice a day - this is a place not to be missed when staying in Green River. It’s near town and can be accessed by any car – you need no 4WD and no high clearance. The different colors... More

This Crystal Geyser (ONE OF ONLY 6 COLD WATER GEYSERS IN THE WORLD) attraction is located about 12 miles off the main interstate road of I-70 near Green River, Utah. If we did not see some xeroxed directions in our hotel, we would not have found it. Check at the local Super 8 or at the John Wesley Powell Museum... More

I guess it would have been neat to see had it actually been erupting when we were there. :) Twice a day is apparently normal and well...we just weren't there during those times. The drive was fun, and the old [Cold War era?] Air Force missile buildings were really neat to see. Nothing spectacular left there, but was just an... More

Really different than what you expect to see in the region. Kind of a pain to get to but interesting when you arrive. Good place to get some good pics. No facilities.

Perhaps, after seeing Yellowstone, my standards are set too high. There's not much to see here other than orange travertine and a thick metal pipe sticking out of the ground, plus much of the travertine was damaged from people walking on it. It's quite off the beaten path. Ask for directions at the John Wesley Powell River Museum on 1765... More

Great little place that has the looks (and smell) of Yellowstone. You can climb all over it and explore. My boys, 13 and 5 loved it, plus we had the place all to ourselves. A great place to visit that is really close to Green River.

I do not feel it was worth the drive. The pool was more like a pond than a geyser with little to view. It is secluded for a "off the highway" break/lunch.

Very cool to see and read about how it works and the high percentage of minerals it deposits into the river and eventually Lake Powel. I don’t like crowds and fences when touring, so this was great.

Was along drive to see a geyser that used to flow more then it does. You really have to watch the signs. Not well mapped out
