The natural palette of colours gives a descriptive name to this place. The outlook offers the perfect view from above of the Lowers Falls, frames by canyon walls. From the Artist Point, a short trail walk takes one to other great view points of the...More

The Artists point of the Grand Canyon of Yellow stone is one of the best sites in the park. The YELLOW stones on the cliffs signify the name of the park. Try to reach there before Sun set to see how the colors change with...More

Absolutely stunning! A quick stop on the drive from Old Faithful to Mammoth, a reasonable driving time from both. Only time for one stop but so glad we picked this one. With views up and down the canyon and the postcard picture of the waterfall....More

Drove through Boulder to Artist Point for an outdoor wedding. Totally awesome. Beautiful views, breath taking landscape. Worth visiting.

Of all the views of the canyon and river this was by far the most beautiful. Well worth spending a little time there.

Above all, do not forget your camera, the views are really spectacular. I personally liked the colors, it looks like a picture and totally justifies its name. A group photo with a nice background is a must.

If you only have a short visit planned, this is a must see. We took South Rim to the parking lot, and then began the hike through the canyon. As we walked, I quickly could see how it got its name - the colors of...More

A bit of a walk to get there on a gravel path. Saw a bison sleeping about 30 yards off the path. The site was cool. Multi tiered. Numerous "pots". 5 star all the way. Lots of thermal activity.

Artist Point is well named. If you have seen artist's renderings of Yellowstone Park, either on canvas or as photos...this is the place. I have attached a photo taken on my iPhone 6. The landscape does all the work, you don't have to! If you...More

Yes it is open, the construction is at Tom's Trail parking area. You will pass it on the way to Artists Point. The parking is limited, September will be easier....but I would still try to get there early. It has one of the... More

I was able to manage it on a broken foot using a cane - assuming you get a nearby park (and there was plenty of parking available when I visited but I was visiting very early in the season) there should not be an issue. If... More
