Scenic place with some great primitive camping

I have stayed there a couple of times now on the night before starting a Labyrinth Canyon float. I have still not been lucky enough to see the geyser go off. Although it had shot... read more

I'm glad we drove in to see the area but I wouldn't do it again. Since the geyser is unpredictable and doesn't go off very often there isn't much to do but stare at it.

We planned on stopping by for a quick 30 minutes before heading out to other activities. Instead our kids were so enthralled by the site that we stayed for about 4 hours. We didn't get to see it actually erupt, but it was bubbling and splashing the whole time. The kids enjoyed playing in the water, finding cool rocks and... More

I have stayed there a couple of times now on the night before starting a Labyrinth Canyon float. I have still not been lucky enough to see the geyser go off. Although it had shot up about 3 feet on both occasions. But I still have not seen a full eruption. Still a really cool place.

While staying in Green River we were told about this Geyser, the people in town didn't really rave about it but as it is only 1 of 15 cold water geysers in the world we thought we had to have a look. We were quite amazed it didn't actually shoot 100 feet in the air but it did fizz quite... More

If you find yourself in Green River for an hour or so, or are in no hurry, I recommend you check out the Crystal Geyser. There is no real way to know exactly when it will blow high (that I know of) but it's really fun to check out anyway! The geyser is constantly going at a low level and... More

We were told to see the geyser while in Green River. It was interesting, but not worth going out of your way. I wish I could have seen the geyser go off, but it only happens maybe twice a day.

This place is absolutely gorgeous. It requires a trip down a long gravel road but is a place the is a must when in the area. The myriad of colors will overwhelm you with what nature can show off.

It is interesting but it is hit or miss if one sees it go off. I have been there several times and love it when it goes off. The drive to the Geyser is short and worth seeing the mineral deposits tatgo to the river. It is like lace work.

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.
