From any vantage point, this fall is magnificent. Not the largest fall to be found, not even the highest in Yellowstone, still, it is among the most beloved and powerfully evocative, for, if nothing else, it's incredible setting, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. But many below have praised its day to day wonder. Here is a slightly different aspect:... More

We weren't sure of the attraction as we got on the road to the falls. When we got there it was just a short walk out to the viewing point. The Falls were spectacular and actually the entire view of the canyon from that spot is quite remarkable. Make sure and look down stream from the Falls, you have to... More

Somewhat flatter than I anticipated during my lone visit, when I was 14 years old. This rated a disappointment because I was all about thrilling mountain roads cresting peaks and riding ridges with hairpin turns back down. My recollection is that the park was geared to more academic tastes. The earth sciences, essentially. And therefore I don't think I was... More

One of the must sees in Yellowstone. Make sure you see both parts of the Falls, Upper and Lower. If you have time hike around the area.

We decided to go for the 4th of July. It was beautiful! I suggest staying in Moran instead of the park. It's a lot cheaper. There is an ice place inside the park that is awesome. It's near old faithful

Lower Yellowstone River Falls was awesome but the main reason I'm writing this is because when I planned my RV journey to Yellowstone I was nervous that I wouldn't be able to do and see all the things I wanted to while in an RV. Well I could and it was awesome!! For background I'm from the UK and my... More

Impressive view into the canyon below, and incredible to see how powerful flowing water can be! Good photography spot also. Relatively easy hike next to the pull-out.

The lower falls are among many of the must see attractions at Yellowstone Park. Whether you are at the 'brink of the fall's' viewpoint or a downstream viewpoint, the falls are a wonder to see. Very picturesque.

Walk down down down to the edge of the falls. Its not difficult to go down, just a little steep on the way up. Go out to the walkway and feel the waterfall under your feet. There is a gate, but it is still thrilling to be that close to the falls. Leave your cameras because you won't be able... More
