Old Faithful Geyser
1299 Tubbs Lane
California 94515

Your well-behaved dog is welcome to accompany you to this natural phenomena. Just keep him or her away from the hot water. This geyser is one of only three Old Faithful geysers in the world, erupting about every 40 minutes on a yearly average. The water is 350 degrees hot and shoots about 60 feet into the air for about three to four minutes, then recedes. To see the geyser, you and your pup will need to walk through the main entrance and gift shop. Purchase the tickets at the gift shop and then walk to the geyser area to watch Old Faithful erupt. There is also a snack bar and picnic areas onsite. The admission price is $10 per adult, $7 per senior, $3 per children 6-12 and FREE for dogs. Prices are subject to change.
