Box Spring began erupting after the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake. It was not until it was researched that people realized it had been active in the 1870's. In 1988 it was still almost impossible to see, with intervals ranging from hours to days. By 1990 it was easy to see. Recent intervals have varied from 10 minutes to 90 minutes. The average interval was about 25 minutes for 2005 through 2009. Box Spring is a fountain-type geyser. Durations are vary from a few seconds to 5 or 6 minutes. Heights reach about 10-15 feet.
