Artist point is a short walk from a very busy parking lot at the end of the South Rim Road. Once there, you are rewarded with an overlook of the falls, the canyon, and the sandstone cliffs making up the walls of the canyon. Yet... it IS crowded. You can easily take the mile hike beyond and go to Point Sublime and get views as well with 10% of the people.

I'd recommend parking as far to the end of the parking lot as you can. And since it is very popular - expect crowds - and be patient. Allow at least an hour - to see the other sights in the area.

Definitely take the time to hike around and explore this area. Artist Point has a great view, it made me think of a mini-Niagra Falls. Great photo opportunities, although the viewing area can be a little crowded. A definite "Must" in Yellowstone!

We visited with 2 families with 5 kids spread between 8 and 16 years old. We started at Artist Point which has some beautiful views, then made the hike along the rim towards the waterfall and down (then up) the 300+ steps on Uncle Toms trail. This is a great activity with a series of spectacular views - well recommended.

When the National Park Service hired someone to make posters for each of its parks, he picked this perspective for the Yellowstone poster. Make sure you see it.

When you're done looking at geysers, this should be next on your list. The view is simply amazing. It is so easy to be inspired by this place, and Artist Point makes it easy for everyone to see something spectacular. But go early. The only thing preventing inspiration is limited parking.
