Geyser Park

Address: 39 W 1st S, Soda Springs, ID 83276Geyser_Pic_By_Ray_Boren_Web

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. It is now capped and controlled by a timer. It erupts every hour on the hour. The geyser reaches heights of 100 feet year round.

There is a Visitor Center which features interpretive signs and restrooms in the park. There is a boardwalk around the geyser and grassy areas with picnic tables and benches to enjoy the day and view the geyser. The geyser is located behind the Enders Hotel located on 1st South and Main.
