Where was The Crossing filmed? Filming Locations of the ABC series

The Crossing where filmed
Posted by
The Crossing is the new series from ABC Studios, the creators of Lost, proposing a great television mystery that has all the premises to conquer the public all over the world.

The enigmatic arrival of a wave of immigrants from the future, seeking asylum from a war-torn country, shakes a sleepy American fishing village to its core. The war from which they are fleeing has not yet happened. As the government tries to find out the truth about the 47 survivors, a new threat looms over the horizon.

The Crossing is set in the fictional town of Port Canaan (Oregon) and Seattle. However, the show was filmed in Vancouver and British Columbia. As usual, we will be expanding and improving this spoiler-free article about The Crossing filming locations as the season advances:

The Crossing location
The bay where the refugees arrive (Thorn beach), was filmed somewhere in Ucluelet area (west coast of Vancouver Island). Doing some research we concluded that it must be Wya Point beach along the Pacific Ocean.

  1. I was sure it was filmed in Seattle and Washington State

  2. No definitely not a Seattle.

    The picture stated as Cypress Mountain is actually called the Lions, see the 2 ears...which our local Canadian football team, the BC Lions, is named after.

  3. It's not actually filmed on Cypress mountain. It's filmed on Hollyburn mountain at First Lake. Yes, it is the same mountain as Cypress bowl ski resort, but there's no Cypress mountain in the resort. The actual Cypress mountain is farther north. Anyone who wants to go to where they filmed the camp has to go to First Lake (and Hollyburn lodge) on Hollyburn mountain. There are a bunch of hiking trails and plenty of cabins up there, including one my partner's family owns.

  4. The dark bridge scene is the old bridge on the old Whistler highway at Nelson Creek.

    1. Thanks, do you know the exact location on Google Maps?

  5. Not many film companies come to Washington State anymore because of the amount of money they have to pay the state.

  6. Filmed also in Tofino. Or at least the the fly over shot in tonight's episode (same view as the last picture in the above article) is Tofino.

  7. Potter's Ice Cream is actually Cremino Gelato in Maple Ridge.

  8. Are you sure the refugee camp isn't the scouts camp in Surrey?

  9. Part of the camp scenes were filmed at Camp McLean, a Fraser Valley Council Scouts Canada property in South Langley (the cabin, the outdoor chapel, some of the lodge). The aereal shots look like Hollyburn Lodge in Cypress Provincial Park (Cypress Bowl).

    1. Thanks a lot for your help. Have you been in Camp McLean? Are you 100% sure of this?

  10. God the house in the most recent episode where the people from the first migration meet looks super familiar to me but I don’t know why. Anyone know if it’s been used in other shows or what?

  11. Thought part of e04 was Cowichan Delta.

  12. Where were the Oakland scenes filmed? I actually live in Oakland, and I know where 85th and Mac are. Those are not what our buses look like btw, lol!
