Where Was Yellowstone Filmed? 5 Most Iconic Locations You Can Yee-Haw to in Real Life
Wanna feel like a star of an iconic Western? Here’s where to go.
Yellowstone tugs at the heartstrings of its fans with so many things. At the core of the show is the dramatic story of a glorified cowboy family protecting their land, and many other little plot lines that are as wild as the characters' lifestyles.
But the thing that definitely won the fans over was actually the series’ scenery. First part of the show was mostly filmed in and around Utah. But for the fourth episode and after the production moved to Montana, the unique state that is famous for its landscapes and very true to life western valleys.
So if you feel like going on a trip to Yellowstone's most picturesque places, here’s your guide.
1. Ogden, Utah
Ogden is a ski town that was used as a central location for many scenes. The shots of the town's streets and shops were there to represent every town-based moment. Even the bar where Beth and others used to hang out is real.
The Outlaw Saloon usually has live country music (as in the show). So if you want to feel like one of the Duttons – just grab a pint and listen to some folk music.
2. Missoula, Montana
After moving the production to another state, there was a need to find some more landscapes giving the needed vibe of the show. Well, if you are ready to explore them, it’s better to start at Ryman Street and Ruby’s Café. The hardcore fans remember it was the setting for the memorable shoot-out scene.
One more pivotal moment was when Beth met Carter near a hospital. That exact moment was shot at the Missoula Community Medical Center. You may also remember that this was the exact place where John Dutton recovered after being shot in the finale of season 3.
3. Chief Joseph Ranch, Montana
Now it’s time to introduce you to the real ranch. It's located in a town called Darby, which is only 90 minutes away from Missoula, there is an amazing Chief Joseph Ranch that was one of the most important locations during the production of the show. And the interesting fact about it is that even in real life the ranch is a family-owned guest ranch.
There's even a chance to stay in the characters' cabins. For example, for $1200, you can stay in Lee Dutton's cabin (remember the eldest Dutton son from Season 1?).
Or, if you add another $300, you can stay in Wheeler's cabin. There's also a bonus: if you book either of these cabins, you'll get a full tour of the ranch and see all the set locations.
4. Crow Indian Reservation
The Crow Indian Reservation was the exact location where all the Broken Rock Reservation scenes were filmed. This place is the largest reservation in Montana and fortunately became a perfect location for the production. There were also many scenes shot in a tribal casino. Well, the real casino was there as well, called Apsaalooke Nights Casino.
5. Guthrie, Texas
We first see the iconic 6666 ranch in season 4, where the story sends Jimmy there to teach him how to become a hardworking and trustworthy cowboy. The ranch was actually founded in 1870 and since then specializes in American Quarter Horses and Angus cattle. Every Yellowstone fan has a chance to visit the open-air 6666 Supply House. It has been at the same spot for more than a century.
