Artist Point provided another great vantage point to see the waterfall, with an easy walk from the parking lot and a nice viewing area. The parking lot was pretty big, so we didn't have to wait for a spot to park like many other parts of the park.

Short walk from the parking lot to take in a great view up and down the canyon. Enjoy the falls in the distance, the whitewater downstream, and the colorful rock walls to the North.

Just as other people review, amazing place. If you like to get the nice view, come at noon time, both side you won't get in shadow. very easy walk.

I view Yellowstone’s Grand Canyon from Artist Point. A water fall twice the height of Niagara Falls is in the distance and the Yellowstone River thunders through the canyon surrounded by rock and forest. It is a beautiful sight.

This is a great place to view the lower falls. However, be aware that if you visit during midday, the parking lot and viewing area will be very crowded. I recommend to park in the lot close to the lower falls and do the ~1 mile hike along the south rim to Artist Point.

We hit here mid-morning & the easy, half-mile stroll along an even, well-groomed pathway opened to a nice, hidden vista of steam rising from the ground across a small, contained dale. To our right were the taupe & blue ground pots; to the left were the mini-geysers bubbling with minute to minute eruptions.

See my review for the Canyon--visit in the morning for a view of a gorgeous rainbow at the base of the falls.

Don't miss seeing this. Only a short hike from parking area. However, we hiked from falls over to Artist Point. If you like the outdoors, take the hike.
