A short walk to see a great view

Very short walk on a paved trail, this vies is accessible to all. One of the very best views of the Yellowstone as it travels through the canyon.

Go in the morning to see the rainbow and beat the bus groups. Photographers should time their visit to see the rainbow.

We absolutely loved this viewpoint! It is indescribable and although pictures are great, nothing compares to actually being there, absorbing the terrain (canyons and colors with the waterfall)!

We visited Artist Point the other day with friends who have two daughters, ages 5 and 11. We had heard it was one of the top 5 places to visit in the park, but had no real expectations. We were all pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to access and how great the view of the falls was! We... More

Artist Point is absolutely unimaginable. The view is breathtaking ! The cliffs and walls of the Canyon are multicolored layers of rocks , that are indescribable . The waterfall is magnificent ! It drops a astounding 300'' into a flowing river of Rapids. Definitely a place to not miss when visiting Yellowstone.

I actually insisted my family go to Artist Point because of TripAdvisor Reviews, and for many of my family members (party of 8), it was their absolute favorite thing they saw! The whole canyon with its colors are just beautiful, and when the sun hits the canyon and waterfall, it is just breathtaking. There are multiple scenic views around the... More

We hiked the trail to get to this point because the parking lot was closed for repaving. I liked the hike--we saw a yellow-bellied marmet poking his head out of his hole on the side of the trail--and it had gorgeous views along the way. The only drawback was some lady smoking on the deck. My daughter and I have... More

Definitely worth the hype, especially if you are an avid photographer. This spot is the perfect place for that Christmas card family photo, or in our case, family reunion photo. A wonderful view of the canyon as a whole with a picturesque view of the towering 308 ft. lower falls. We chose to visit Artists Point around 9:30 AM one... More
