Absolutely beautiful, don’t sleep on this stop. I didn’t expect it to be one of my favorite stops but it really was. It’s very easy to get to the viewing platform and the view is stunning. I’m terribly afraid of heights and this was very doable for me.

We were there during a snowstorm and the colors and view were still great. A really can't miss spot.

It’s hard to find words to describe how beautiful this area is. I had no idea that this existed in Yellowstone and I’m so glad we took the time to see this part of the park. Give yourself time to take in the beauty around Artist Point, you will not regret it.

Went in the shoulder season (late September) and even then it was quite crowded by the time my hiking tour arrived. There's a reason it's called Artists point - so much beauty to take in.

This is the best view of the falls and the river valley. With the right light you can get a rainbow from the falls.

Amazing waterfall and views. Great for pictures. The sheer amount of water going over the falls is crazy. There are some cool overlooks.

This has to be the most gorgeous view in the park. There is a reason why it is called Artist Point. You can see so many colors. There are different viewing areas to spread out the crowds.

The Lower Falls are by far the biggest waterfall in Yellowstone, and the 308-foot-tall waterfall is reportedly the second most photographed attraction in Yellowstone, with Old Faithful being first. There are numerous views of the Falls from both the east and west sides of the river and most require only a short walk or virtually no walk at all to get a great view. Over my lifetime I’ve been to Yellowstone 5-6 times, and I think this is probably my most favorite spot. And yes, I know with all the unique spots in Yellowstone, it’s a hard choice to pick just one. We liked it so much that we purchased a Thomas Moran Giclee Print (reproduction that is painted on canvas) that we had framed and hung right above the sofa in our living room. Moran painted his famous view of the Lower Falls (technically from the other side of the river) after accompanying the Hayden Expedition in a federally funded geological survey of Yellowstone in 1871. The painting came to the attention of the U.S. Government and was very influential when Congress considered the Yellowstone National Park Bill of 1871. Yellowstone was established as the first national park in the United States in March 1872, and Moran's painting was subsequently purchased by the government and hung in the US Capitol until 1950. It was then transferred to the U.S. Department of the Interior Museum where it still hangs. The Lower Falls area is located just to the east of Canyon Village campground which is a great place to stay if you are camping. Don’t make a trip to Yellowstone without visiting the Lower Falls.

To me, this was the most gorgeous view in the park. It was well worth the small hike to get to the Point. One hint, go early and beat the crowds. Parking is limited.
