This is really not far of the road to see if you are driving through Soda Springs. We came out purposefully for an afternoon, and it is amazing just how enclosed it is by the rest of the town. It goes of once an hour, on the hour and is really quite amazing. Expect to be showered if there is a breeze blowing.
If you are coming specifically for a visit don't expect to find a huge amount to fill a long space of time. There is a tour of things of interest in the area but none of them take very long to see. There is a small museum beside the geyser which is quite interesting but is just information for reading and would not be of such interest for young children.
We also drove up the hill to Hooper Spring, which was worth doing as you are able to see (and taste if you wish) some naturally sparkling spring water!!

Visited here just before sunset on a cold January day. Apparently the geyser is operated on the hour, every hour, every day of the year (though don't quote me on this).

Nobody else was around. There was ice all over the surrounding walkways, but the water was very warm. When the geyser was activated, it went incredibly high, and created steam all around it -- fun to experience.

The weirdest thing: when I put my hands back in the water right after the geyser stopped, it was much, much colder than it had been beforehand.

Anybody who can explain this gets a gold star.

We stopped by to see the Soda Springs Geyser and it was an unexpected highlight of the day. The geyser is a "controlled" eruption. There's a valve on it so you know it will erupt every hour on the hour. We were there on a bright summer day and the geyser was just beautiful. You can walk from there to a small local museum, the cemetery with an Oregon Trail grave in it and a former plane spotting tower used during World War II. A very pleasant way to spend an hour on your way through the area.

It was pouring rain when we arrived so we viewed from the car. Easier to see than Old Faithful because of the cooler water temperature.
The town is surrounded by plants processing the local phosphate and gypsum. Didn't check on availability but would have loved to tour the Monsanto plant!

Stop here is traveling through. It goes off every hour on the hour and the kids can play in it. It lasts about 5 minutes but we loved it.
