Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little walk from Mather point (.7 miles). Spectacular views on your walk and then you can enjoy a quick tour of the Geology museum.

Wide open, big views and amazing scenes from this location. Soak in the views from Yavapai Point! Be prepared for crowds, as this is a popular spot. Still, you will not be disappointed.

This is the furthest east and north of the South Rim views. Each is different and worth a look. The Orange shuttle route goes to this area; private vehicles are currently not allowed.

Yavapai Point in Grand Canyon National Park is beautiful and a quiet place to take in the majesty of the Grand Canyon.

Yavapai Point may have been my favorite place in Grand Canyon National Park. We visited the Geology Museum and small gift shop, which we enjoyed, as much as we could as it was partially closed by COVID.

What made Yavapai outstanding was the sunset we watched there--it was simply stunning. I'd highly recommend that catching a sunset at Yavapai is a must do when visiting GCNP.

Easily accessible with nearby parking lot with some of the best views of the Grand Canyon along the South Rim but as a result also one of the busiest locations in the Park. Great area for watching sunset. If the observation point is crowded just walk down the trail to the east in the direction of Mather Point for many great and quieter spots. If you only have time to visit one or two observation points, Mather and Yavapai Points are probably the best and most convenient. Try to see other vistas like Mohave and Hopi Point along the road to Hermit's Rest or Moran or Lipan Points along the East Rim Drive.

Probably one of my favorite areas of the park. Also adjacent to a geology museum. Just awe inspiring. Has an adjacent parking lot if you don't want to hike the rim trail.

Right by Yavapai point there is also ruins that you will see. Visit the museum there as well. Sit and take in the most amazing views.

Considering Yavapai Point is on the South Rim the views are simply awesome. I walked from Mather Point to Yavapai Point to be able to enjoy the views completely. There are breathtaking views all over Yavapai Point.

It’s nice there’s a cool environment behind the large windows of the geologic museum here but out in the open at the viewpoint is where the expansive vista of Grand Canyon is best appreciated. It’s just a short walk from the bus stop but gets you away from the crowds at Bright Angel.
