“Naturally occurring Soda water!”

Soda Springs has the only captive geyser in the world.  It was discovered in an attempt to find a hot water source for a swimming pool.  On November 30, 1937, the drill went down 315 feet and unleashed the geyser.  The extreme pressure is caused by carbon dioxide gas mixing with water in an underground chamber.  The water is around 72 F.  It is now controlled by a timer.  It erupts every hour on the hour.  the geyser reaches heights of 100 feet year round.  The Visitor Center features interpretive signs and restrooms.

Definite stop for your kids. The water is warm but not hot. The geyser starts at the top of every hour (when we’re there it was about 5 minutes late) and lasts for about 10min. We got there early and walked around water area examine al of the rock and read history panels.

Plenty of area to park for large vehicles. Not a lot of shade on hot days.

Our whole family enjoyed this. Geyser erupted on the hour and went for about 8 min. It was cold water and my kids got to go right up and play in the water falling down. Great thing to see!
