Absolutely beautiful area of oldfort. It is a great place for picnics and fishing in mill creek. The only downside is no porta John's and no restroom. The closest rest room is about 5 miles away.

This geyser was built over a hundred years ago and might be worth a drive over if you are in the area to view Catawba Falls hiking waterfall area. There are a few picnic tables and they are currently making improvements to the area.

If you are looking for a nice spot to take a picnic or just be outside this wide open field is a great option. The area was well maintained and a nice drive through to get there/

Drove the back roads to Old Fort to see the geyser that is actually a fountain. A bit deceptive but nice stop while on a road trip on a hot, summer day.

Drove here just to see it up close. It's not geyser, it's a fountain which we knew based on research but they should call it what it is. There are some picnic areas nearby you can use if needed. The fountain is quaint. We stayed...More

Nice park for a picnic. Interesting history behind the geyser, which is really a fountain. I've been twice late spring and winter. It's a beautiful sight when frozen.

Andrews is not a geyser as there is no thermal geological activity in this part of the country. That being said, this is a high fountain that does look like a geyser. It is a pretty little park with a couple picnic tables along a...More

It runs non-stop. It is fed from a stream 5 miles up in the mountains. You must have been there during a dry spell if it was not working. There are no admission charges.
