In this area are a group of springs famous to Oregon Trail travelers, most of whom stopped to try the "Acid taste and effervescing gasses" of the waters.
Earlier, fur traders often — less elegantly — called the place "Beer Springs" after one spring whose waster tasted "like Lager Beer ...only flat." Another, Steamboat Spring, made sounds "exactly resembling ... a high pressure steam engine." Both springs are now drowned in the modern reservoir, but others still can be tasted.
