Oregon’s Unstoppable Lone Geyser

Southern Oregon’s Old Perpetual Geyser is still spouting after reports in 2010 of its inactivity. While it may not shoot 200-degree spring water sixty feet into the air every ninety seconds like it used to, the only geyser in Oregon is still seasonally active. Excavators accidentally created Old Perpetual—along with two other geysers—in 1923 when they were drilling a hot water pipe for Hunter’s Hot Springs, named after developer Harry Hunter. It sits just north of Lakeview atop a geothermal basin with the pools of the resort nearby. Two of the geysers died off, but Old Perpetual remained, becoming Lake County’s must-see tourist attraction.
