The Oregon Badlands is a wilderness area of approximately 29,000 acres located east of Bend. There are ancient juniper trees, sagebrush and arid areas in addition to rocks formations and caves. Because there are century old trees, this wilderness area should be treated with respect and would not be appropriate for bushwhackers or any reality show wanting to live off the land.
The Badlands are located close to Bend, for easy access to accomodation and services. Should you be filming in the Badlands, please remember to carry in plenty of water and to leave as little trace as possible.
Permits will be issued by the Bureau of Land Management (please allow at least TWO MONTHS prior to applying for a permit).
