We heard about this unique geyser and had to see it for ourselves. The road to the geyser rutted and poorly marked however the geyser itself is very interesting. We wandered around the area and enjoyed sites.

To many people have thrown rocks down the tube over the years and barely any water comes out any more. Used to be cool, now it's just depressing. Best mineral shelf formations still present, but everything was all but dried up.

I have stopped by to see the Crystal geyser numerous times over the last seven years. Unfortunately, I have only caught several minor eruptions of from anywhere from 1 to 2 feet. Usually, it's just a bubbling spring. However, the eruption of the Crystal Geyser, is only one reason to visit this site. The travertine formations around the geyser, are... More

Chances are you won't see it go off, it goes off about once every sixteen hours, I guess. Nice little area if it's not occupied by local campers or if you can find a place to dip into the river. Not as well signed as they said it is, I took a wrong turn down some guy's road.

The site is approximately 7-10 miles off I-70 and reached via a secondary road and a 7 mile dirt road. Fun to see the geyser. Was told it sometimes reaches 100' in height. Today it was only about 6' high. Some steep grades and sharp turns, but interesting. It is located next to a fast running river. Nice place for... More

Passed some visitors who had spent almost two days waiting for the eruption and they gave up. We were traveling on dirt bike motorcycles and rolled into the site where some others also were giving up. 15 minutes upon our arrival it took off. Very nice 60 foot eruption. Worth seeing but timing is critical. Luck of the draw.

This is a beautiful spot along the Green River. It's perfect for an afternoon of canoeing or a few days camping. The fishing is said to be excellent, and there's little around to bother you but cows. The geyser itself is powered by carbon dioxide (a cold geyser) and erupts about once a day. The strength of the eruption is... More

If you take the winding road to the Crystal Geyser, be aware that you may not see any geothermal activity. This geyser is NOT regular. The setting is great and you could plan a picnic so that your trip is not wasted. We waited more than an hour, no luck. But no one claims that you will be lucky. Enjoy... More

We just wanted a place to get out and stretch our legs on our long road trip. This Geyser is worth a stop to admire the geological changes that the geyser has made to the rocks and surrounding area. I love stuff like this, so it was worth a 30 minute stop. Geyser started bubbling as soon as we arrived... More

One of only 3 or 4 cold water geysers. Easy to get to on dirt roads but can't always count on an eruption, they are very irregular but still an interesting find.
