  • Pleasant and interesting place, lots to do as well. We took a picnic lunch there, nice way to wait for the geyser to emerge.

  • The geyser isn’t that reliable but they can predict when it should go off next. When we went it was every half hour or so. It started off as just a little spit and everyone thought that was it but...

  • I honestly enjoyed it. It's a little expensive I think for what's offered. We brought our own food and there aren't really any other attractions besides the geyser itself. I paid almost $50 and I'm not really sure why. I also had to pay to feed the goats, which was the most exciting part. But the whole area is quiet and peaceful and not too big so it felt safe for young kids to play. Unfortunately the geyser did not erupt while we were there but they did give us a free voucher for up to a year so that was cool. I'd love to go back but not at that price. It was a good time out but not worth the money.
  • I strongly recommend this place for families with young kids. Nature lovers should put this in a must see list. Yes , Napa still has volcanic activity. Waiting to see this natural phenomena is thrilling. It's easy to reach if you use Google maps. Only 70 miles north of San Francisco. Huge parking lot which has a food truck. Limited food options available. Several picnic tables are there in the property so bring your family with lunch and have a blast. Very informative, well maintained property.
