When you reach and have a first glimpse of Artiste Point you would understand why this is the most popular spot in Yellow Stone. Firstly it is easily accessible and gives you many opportunities for Photo Shoot. The Canyons of Yellow Stone are best seen from here. You have lush forests in the Back Ground with the fall making the... More

We really enjoyed this view. I was able to take a beautiful picture with my daughter on the foreground and the waterfall in the background. Unlike many of the views of the falls this one took minimal effort, only a few stairs

Easy access from the car park and great photograph opportunities. Very busy and worth seeing due to scenery and stunning views.

On a five point scale, I give Artist's Point a twelve!!! My suggestion as to how to arrange your tour of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is to do everything else first, so you get the views from all the different angles. Start at the North Rim and drive or walk to all the viewpoints. This will give you... More

Absolutely beautiful photo op! Watch out for the tourist buses that shuttle hundreds of people at a time onto this section. It gets crowded quick

Artist's Point is a very easy walk from the parking lot and has a stunning view of the canyon and lower fall. It will probably be crowded, but be patient--the view is worth it!

I hate to say it, but the colors here make the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone look BETTER than THE Grand Canyon. The views from here are dizzying but incredible, and if the sun is shining, the colors are like nothing I have ever seen before. DON'T miss this while you are in YNP!

Perfect place to see the lower falls at sunrise. Be sure to bring your camera and capture nature at it's finest.

This was my favorite viewpoint of the entire National Park! It's too bad we drove to other viewpoints of the falls after this one, because they paled in comparison. It's an amazing site, so much better than any pictures you may have seen of it. The grandeur of the canyon has to be seen in person, especially with the perfectly... More
