Filming Locations

One of the Pacific Northwest’s claims to fame is the plethora of movies and TV shows that have been filmed here. Right now two of the most famous are probably Grimm and Portlandia, but we can also claim Battlestar Galactica, the Twilight Series, Goonies, Kindergarden Cop, The Ring 2, and many, many more.

As is everything else on this page, only places I have personally visited and photographed are included. So, yes, there is a lot of locations missing from here. They will be updated as I get to them in my travels.

  • I have a historic property in Eagle Creek for a film location. I am listed on the Oregon film site, please feel free to list my place here for film as well. We also would love to know more about our home supposedly built by Sliker or Slikee. He operated a saw mill in Currinsville 1890’s.
    Thank you!

  • the tv series “route 66” used to film out of a house on hwy. 213 thru oregon city. the house is directly across from the original hospital, and just down the street from the gravesites of the mc laughlin family at the old mc laughlin house.

  • I can recall two movies filmed in Oregon, which also had some A listers on the cast list. The first being “Paint Your Wagon”, starring Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood. The second, being “Sometimes A Great Notion”, starring Henry Fonda, Peter Fonda, Paul Newman and others.
    A third movie that I am not sure about, location wise, is “Emperor Of the North”, starring Ernest Borgnine and Lee Marvin.

  • I have a handful of photos my mother took of the actual making of the movie “Bend Of The River” on Mt. Hood from about 1958.
