Where is the Yellowstone ranch filmed? Filming Locations of the Kevin Costner series

Yellowstone where filmed

Posted by Ra Moon
Yellowstone is a modern-day TV western from Paramount Network (replacing the cable channel Spike). The ten-episode cowboy drama tells the story of a family led by their patriarch John Dutton, played by Kevin Costner. The Dutton clan will have to defend the largest ranch in United States, bordering Yellowstone National Park, from land developers, an Indian Reservation and the park itself.

This ambitious project was created by Taylor Sheridan, who started his career in acting (Sons of Anarchy) before writing acclaimed movies like Sicario or Hell or High Water. Kevin Costner is joined by an impressive cast, including Wes Bentley (American Beauty, Interstellar), Kelly Reilly (Britannia, Flight) and Luke Grimes (from Fifty Shades film series).

Yellowstone was filmed in Utah and Montana. We will be updating this spoiler-free report every week with new filming locations from the show, as the season goes on:

  1. Loving this series! Kelly Reilly is awesome.

  2. I love Yellowstone I can't get enough of the show. I lived in Salmon Idaho for years always went to Darby. I have been at Cheif Josephs ranch many times.

  3. Amazing to see Rip and Beth's relationship grow stronger and it's the smaller details in their characters that are being revealed like their dancing together at the Whiskey Bar and, of course, the roof scene where both of their personalities soften and become more tender to each other. Beth is on point when she senses that Rip is going to say it but asks that he reserve for a later time when she needs it. All I can say about the attack scene at Beth's office is that she is one formidable woman to reckon with and,of course, I absolutely LOVED when Rip says it at the time when she needs it most and she is at her worst! Taylor Sheridan's attention to detail is absolutely amazing and he gets it and nails it as far as I am concerned. Oh, and I love that Jimmy's character is getting more extended play in the future. I admire the dedication to their craft and the willingness to perfect their new western skills to make it very authentic. I knew Kelly Reilly was from England and with the help of her dialect coach most people are totally surprised about this. More Kudos to Kelly on that!

  4. gripping drama, but in the old days of westerns is was the good guys against the bad guys, sadly in this you have to pick the BAD guy you root for. I guess there is no one good in corrupt society anymore.

  5. Love the show... can't get enough of it. Does anyone know where the location of Dan Jenkin's lodge is? It's not mentioned in the article...

    1. It’s a place called promontory Utah. There are two jack Nicklaus signature golf courses 5here and 5hats the restaurant and pro shop. Very very nice and top of the line all the way.

  6. My wife and I Love Yellowstone, always liked Kevin Costner, we have a cabin near Darby and visit it as often as possible. It's hard because we live near Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, far far away. This Summer we saw activity at the "Dutton Homesite" which had a Yellowstone sign over the Main entrance, our friends who live there told us the series was being partially filmed there...Really cool...Montana is an Awesome state, we love it.... Durhams

  7. This series is absolutely fantastic love it but there is one small detail at the beginning when you see the big dredging wheel that is supposed to be digging out dirt it is turning backwards, its supposed to be turning in the opposite direction just thought you mite want to know, besides that can't wait for season three you go John Dutton

  8. So I'm wondering if the second Beck brother died ...or will he return next season ...angrier and meaner than ever …? Just wondering. I'm also glad John Dutton gave Rip the house; no one in that family is more dedicated to him than Rip. Really getting into this fictitious story. And it has been mocked by the critics as a "cheap western soap."

  9. Love, Love, Love this show, just wish they would have a few more shows per season.

  10. Best show on TV, where are the Emmy noms?

  11. BEST SHOW EVER!!!!!!!!
