Nothing to see here but a grumpy store owner selling junk. Trail no longer open as owner can't handle cars parking near her store.

Very pretty view, but there are lot's of pretty views along scenic U.S. 71 Short hike to a little waterfall is rather steep coming back up. Nice gift shop where we bought some hand-made jams. Off the beaten path. Worth the stop, but for me,...More

Sure there is a good view, nice little gift shop, interesting little museum, a chance to get some refreshments, and see the cockatoo. But the real reason to stop is to see all of the hummingbirds. Multiple feeders are constantly being swarmed by the beautiful...More

Now this is an awesome place to stop. They have a small but very interesting museum and lots of cool gifts. Very friendly and a great view out the back windo.

The name evoked images of great views ... and the view is good but not something great. Perhaps worthy of a brief stop. Definitely not for viewing the sunset.

If in the area make sure to drive AR 71. Great road, lots of curves and beautiful views. Artist Point is just one of many places to stop.

Gorgeous views! I think this is my favorite view in the area, seeing the lake between the trees was so pretty even though it wasn't as high as it normally is. The only thing I'd suggest is a new lens... you can't see anything out...More

We stopped here on our way to Lake Fort Smith State Park. The view from the road is beautiful, and we bought some local jam from inside the store. Though the store owner warned us that there is a bear who lives nearby, we went...More

Off the beaten path, but stop if you see it. Artwork, fudge, hard candy, museum, bits and pieces of old Antiques and used stuff. There is a talking bird....the kids will love it! The VERY best thing? THE VIEW! Go for the view!
