Smith Rock State Park (Winter)

Scenic views of deep river canyons or rock climbing, Smith Rock State Park is a stunning and unique location. There are several thousand climbs in the park allowing for multiple shoots. With more than a thousand are bolted routes, there is also miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. 

Due to the uniqueness and fragile aspect of the park, park rangers enforce the animal leash law and strongly encourage all park users to stay on trails.  Permits must be applied for 30 days prior to shooting.

During the high season (Spring and Fall) there is only one permit per month issued for productions or events. During Summer and Winter that increases to two per month.

Antelope Valley

The Antelope Valley between Shaniko and Prineville is a stunning area of towering rock formations and winding roads, perfect for a car commercial.   There are few services in the area, but Madras is located nearby and offers excellent accommodation, restaurants and services.

From Wikipedia:

Antelope is a small town in Wasco CountyOregon, United States. It has an estimated population of 47 people (as of 2012), and is incorporated as a city. The town was incorporated in 1901, though it was founded earlier. The City of Antelope was originally a stage and freight wagon road stop on the Old Dalles to Canyon City Trail. Howard Maupin came to Antelope in 1863 to operate a horse ranch, becoming the caretaker of the stage station which was established by Henry Wheeler in 1864. Maupin began raising cattle to provide meat for travelers. Nathan Wallace, who is sometimes credited with being Antelope’s first postmaster, acquired the Antelope stage station from Maupin in 1870. Records indicate the community was considered to have been established in 1872.
