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

Once was a free attraction, and worth the wait & limited action. Now you pay & it may not be worth the wait. Somewhat disappointed for taking time to see it again.

We found out about this Old Faithful Geyser while visiting Calistoga. I know it is smaller than Old Faithful in Yellowstone, but it was still quite a sight. They also had a small zoo and the grounds were well kept. It was a peaceful setting...More

It's a small attraction. Only a five minute drive from downtown Calistoga. We were the only ones there when we visited. Therefore, only spent about an hour. It is set up for up to bring your family, friends, wine and just have a nice picnic....More

Costs $15/person - but you can get a groupon for $17.50 for 2 people. Geyser was pretty cool and erupted every 5-10 minutes. Porta potties were large and clean. They even had a hand washing station. Bring some food and drink and spend some time....More

Wonderful grounds with lots of seating areas. Great place for a picnic. They even have a picnic station inside with supplies (napkins, wine glasses, utensils, a microwave) all for use for free! The animal farm is interesting and good for kids. They were doing some...More

Was underwhelmed by this stop, the geyser goes up fairly frequently so you don’t need to wait long for the “big” display. Having seen Old Faithful I was expecting a bit more. There are informative signs around the park that explain the geology of the...More

I’ve seen more water pressure from a garden hose. Not worth $15 in my opinion. I give it 2 stars because of the goats that we were able to feed.

A bit pricey, but very informative. Nice trinkets for sale in the gift shop as well. Family friendly too.
