Using the South Rim Drive, you can stop and view the Lower Falls and Grand Canyon of Yellowstone at Artists Point. Artists Point is where you can have the most beautiful grand view of the Lower Falls together with Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the snaking Yellowstone River below. The view is amazing and the colors of Grand Canyon are... More

Stop, take time to listen, view and enjoy. One of many stops in the park considered a must see. Incredible beauty.

This was such a nice surprise, as we had no idea that we should go until some other tourists mentioned it to us. It is not very hard to walk to and is a very good place for photos. You can see the beautiful colors in the rocks and get a great view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone.... More

It is a nice point where you can see artists at work inspired by the nature and enjoy a wonderful and wide view of the Upper Falls of Yellowstone and the canyon without doing difficult trails (it is a really little walk from the car parking). Definitely a place to see in Yellowstone Park.

So this was beautiful, along with the Prismatic spring along with the other colorful springs we saw. It gets crowded by mid morning at the different springs, so plan to get an early start, parking is limited at all the sites so be prepared. Would definitely visit again.

Definitely a must see. There's not much else to say about it. You will not be disappointed! Bring your best camera and time it with sunrise or sunset.

There are many viewpoints on each side of the canyon/falls that have beautiful views but this point is the best viewpoint around and can also view downstream from same point which is equally beautiful. Many fotos and paintings originate here

I'd not known much about the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone before I visited the first time, but was awestruck, particularly with the yellow rock formations and spires and the view of the falls in the back. I returned a year later and stayed even longer, I was so mesmerized. I was there during shoulder season, so the crowds were not... More
