Filming at Deception Pass State Park

Filming at Deception Pass State park takes advantage of the spectacular natural scenery in the gap between Whidbey Island and Fidalgo Island.
This park stretches over more than 4,000 acres at the north end of Whidbey Island, and is the most visited State Park in Washington. The dramatic landscapes include ancient forest, three scenic lakes, and 77,000 feet of saltwater coastline. Jagged rock formations stretch up from one of Puget Sound’s narrowest passageways, where the rushing currents collide in the shadow of iconic Deception Pass Bridge.

As well as natural scenery, this park also boasts 38 miles of trails, hundreds of campsites over three locations, several boat launches, a camp store, and other amenities.

Speak to park manager Jack Hartt for more information about filming in this stunning location. Some areas may be limited because of time or visitor use, but all areas of the park are negotiable depending on circumstances, and requirements of the production. Pricing is variable depending on size of the shoot, impact, timing, staff involvement, etc. Please give at least a week’s notice or there will be additional fees involved, as a permit must be issued by the regional office.
