Owner description: Like its more famous Yellowstone counterpart, this Napa Valley geyser erupts at regular intervals - every forty minutes, in the case of the Calistoga gusher.

This is a cool place to take youngsters or folks visiting the area for the first time. The geyser goes off on a regular basis and there are animals on the property

Depending on the time of year you go the geyser spouts a little or quite a lot. We went after a fairly wet period of time and the geyser spouted about every 2-3 minutes and launched at least 30 feet high. Everything else on this property is ho-hum.

Overpriced and underdone. This is privately run by what appears to be a family. The grounds, signage, toilets must be left over from a third world HBO film. A real tourist trap. The geyser may or may not be real...i could not tel;l.

Interesting but run down facility. Signage is typed on paper and not professionally done. Video is from the 1980's. Bathrooms are porta potties. Geyser erupted every 5-10 minutes so we got some good pictures. It was a good break from wine tasting but not worth a special trip.
