Paulina Lake is stunning, surrounded by towering Ponderosa’s and is located in the center of Newberry Crater National Monument. This is Federal Land, and therefore may be difficult to receive permits to film within. If you have enough advance notice (60 days), we can work with you to film here provided your shoot follows certain guidelines.
There is a restaurant and cabins on site, and a large area for parking.
Approximately 20 minutes from accommodation in La Pine, and an hour from Bend.
For a permit to be approved, guidelines must be adhered to:
“A plan was established to provide management direction for the Monument. In the plan, proposals for new commercial uses such as filming/photography were to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis but each must be in keeping with the purposes of the Monument and legislation to be approved. As such, typical commercial filming would not meet the definition and would be denied. However, filming/photography that provides for the conservation, protection, interpretation, and enhancement of the Monument to a general public is acceptable.”
