  • I have to admit that it was cooler than I expected. Particularly the sounds and the bubbling mud. It was a bit smaller than expected. It is appropriately right next to a geothermal plant. But cautious...  more »
  • if we had visited we probably would have seen many very cool "tiny" mud volcanoes gurgling and erupting right in front of our eyes! We would also have warned our kids not to step in wet mud, not only ...  more »

  • Bring a pair of shoes you don't mind getting muddy. The sights and sounds feel other worldly. There is no fence or barrier preventing you from getting too close. The signs say private property but a Mecca ranger station brochure says its OK to view the site respectfully. Use McDonald drive to get here since its mostly paved.
  • An interesting place and pretty cool natural geothermic mini volcanoes, but it's in private property and it sucks that you've gotta trespass to see it. I guess it's a good thing there isn't that much else to see since you may be asked to leave. If you're in the area, check it out. But I'd say it isn't really worth a drive out there if you're not nearby.
  • Very odd experience to hear the gurgling of the mud pots, but you must add this to your list of things to do if you are visiting Salvation Mountain and East Jesus. You may be disappointed if this is all you drove out here in the middle of nowhere for, but it is a nice addition to the list. Pro tip: Hold your nose when you exit your vehicle.
  • Great to see how the planet works.sad to see people ruin it by walking on the mounds.
  • In the middle of nowhere, but an excellent experience. It's a pretty exposed area - bring a sun hat - but it was great to explore the volcanoes, hear them burp, smell the sulfut and see the boiling mud pools.
