“the best view in the park”
Artist Point is a cliff on the south rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone due west of Yellowstone Falls on the Yellowstone River in Yellowstone National Park. The point was originally named in 1883 by Frank Jay Haynes who improperly believed that the point was the place at which painter Thomas Moran sketched his 1872 depictions of the falls. Later work determined that the sketches were made from the north rim, but the name Artist Point stuck.
Loved this spot to get out and look at the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. It is beautiful and has a nice large parking lot especially compared to other park locations. Great spot for pictures!
We were there when the weather was clear, and it was beautiful. The pictures we took from that day do not even appear real. Definitely worth a stop!
Absolutely stunning views. However, you will have to share those views with lots of people. Consider taking some of the area trails to get different stunning views with less of the crowds.
This was my favorite view at Yellowstone. Beautiful view of a waterfall. Picturesque is the word that comes to mind.
Compared to the other sites at Yellowstone, we weren't overwhelmed by Artist Point. It was an easy walk though.
Another overlook along the Grand Canyon with a closer view of the falls. Very pretty.
