Everybody stops here for the obligatory picture. There is a good reason why. The view of the canyon and the lower falls can't be beat. But, there are about a million people there at any given time.

Way too many people here when the tour buses are around, but the view is fantastic. Crowds to thin out after dinner and are the worst last morning through early afternoon.

We enjoyed the ranger lead bird talk at artist point. I recommend any of the ranger lead 20 min talks. In general, we would pick a yellowstone section, spend our day... More

This really is the ideal place for the family picture, plenty of good vantage points and parking, not too far of a walk to get to the best spots, all paved. What a beautiful view!!

This is a very nice and peaceful view of the falls. There is a short walk on a paved surface to the viewing area. There are benches at the point.

When: 4th July weekend The viewpoint is just a quick stroll from the parking lot and is quite the photo spot. I wouldn't miss this even if I was in a hurry - especially since the views are majestic and it is so easy to reach.

If you want to take pictures of the lower falls, this is a great view. Better than Glacier point in yosemite. Generally others around you are forgiving with each other's photo shooting.
