LaPine State Park: Big Pine

LaPine State Park is located outside of the town of LaPine in Central Oregon. This park is an excellent location for filming, with multiple parks on the river.

Entrance to the Big Pine area is off the main paved road via a relatively short unpaved road to an expansive parking area.  

Paved paths are good for walking or running shoots, and to access the 500 year old pine and water front park area.

Perfect for recreational shoots, running, walking or any shoots necessary with a wooded area.

Open 8am – 8pm. Permit required.

Chimney Rock Campground

Along the Chimney Rock segment of Central Oregon’s Crooked Wild and Scenic River, Chimney Rock campground offers a stunning woodland setting amongst Western Juniper trees and beneath massive Columbia River rock formations. Fly-fishing and hiking on the nearby Chimney Rock trail offer excellent branded content opportunities, particularly for recreational and fly fishing requirements.

There is a reasonable amount of parking for vehicles, production rigs may be more challenged. Camping area would provide multiple areas for crew.  

We highly recommend this area for a fly fishing or recreational shoot.   Permits must be obtained from the BLM, and are required between 30-45 days in advance.
