Blue Basin (John Day National Monument)

Blue Basin is a stunning formation within the Sheep Rock Unit of the John Day National Monument. Nearest towns are Dayville, and John Day (accommodation and services).

Stunning visuals are available, and large parking area for production vehicles.  You cannot walk on the rock formations as they are delicate, but there are hiking paths around the area that lend themselves specifically to print campaigns.  This is one of the less populated areas of the John Day National Monument, and as such an excellent location for film purposes.

Permits must be obtained 21-30 days in advance from the park ranger. 

ABSOLUTELY NO drone use within the National Monument.
