Home to the world’s only man made geyser, Soda Springs entertains visitors from around the world. Shooting up to an awe inspiring 150 feet, this beautiful landmark was discovered in an attempt to find a hot water source for a thermal heated 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 a subterranean chamber. It is now capped and controlled by a timer.
A remodeled historic downtown building welcomes visitors with two rooms which contain large interpretive signs telling of local natural wonders and history. It also serves as a handicap accessible restroom facility.
