Film & Photography in Georgia State Parks

The Hunger Games, A Walk in the Woods, Vampire Diaries and a Ken Burns’ PBS documentary: Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites have been a part of many film, video, and commercial photography projects in the state.

Projects have included:

  • Independent films & feature films
  • TV commercials & promotional videos
  • Live feeds, reality shows & documentaries
  • Music videos & fashion shoots
  • Print advertisements

Park locations offer some of the most outstanding outdoor spaces for filming including scenic overlooks, lakes, waterfalls, creeks and streams, historic settings and ruins, cozy cottages, camping, and lots of woods. They have been transformed into the Appalachian Mountains, Montana, Hawaii, and Christmas in Connecticut complete with snow.
