We stopped by Andrews Geyser on our way to another mountain destination. The park surrounding the geyser was nice, with a beautiful stream along the back side of the property. However, the geyser was not working - dry as a bone. Just a disappointment.

This is a man made Geyser but still beautiful to see. The grounds are very well maintained. Good place to have a picnic!

Worth a trip if you are in the area. We stopped in February and since it was windy, the geyser was spraying water in every direction! Kind of funny, but prevented us from walking anywhere near it. It is in a very quiet, remote spot and often, that can make it an enjoyable experience.
We happened to see a train going up the 'loops' and have to say it was quite an impressive show! Would make it worthwhile to sit and watch the trains, but we were told the trains are not very frequent.

This geyser is powered by the water in the pond that is owned by The Inn on Mill Creek. They control a valve that releases water to course down hill to power this column of water that shoots 40-70' in the air.

I agree with other reviewer,when it is frozen and full of ice it is beautiful.I have great photos I have also caught a rainbow when the mist and sun were just right.When I first found it ,I thought the history and its location was interesting.Things went down hill when I brought relatives from Germany there.They pretty much found it to be of little or no interest.They only enjoyed photos on the big concrete chair.If you are passing by go see it,do not make it a stop on your todo list.When you think that they turn it on and off like a faucet,it really takes away its appeal.
