About

Dawson County has a unique geography of rolling hills, curvy roads, mountainous backdrops, and farm land making it an ideal location for film production.

Long-time settlers of Dawson County lived off the land, hunting the forests, fishing the streams, and working the land on small subsistence farmsteads. Dawson County continues to celebrate its agricultural roots, with small farms championing the freshness of local foods and offering visitors a glimpse of the farming life. The settings of old farmsteads offer perfect locations for filming giving you space, privacy, and perfect scenery needed for those special scenes.

In addition to its natural resources, Dawson County is also home historic and unique sites including old churches, a historic courthouse, historic jail, old rock school house, farms, steel bridge, cemeteries, river and lake access, and a location that houses city hall and a moonshine distillery under the same roof.
