Where is Big Sky filmed? Filming Locations Guide

The cast of the series
Posted by

Big Sky is David E. Kelley's new thriller, the creator of hit series like Ally McBeal, Big Little Lies, Goliath, or more recently The Undoing. The series is set in Helena, Montana's state capital city, so many establishing shots of the town are from there. However, Big Sky was entirely filmed in and around Vancouver in British Columbia.

The plot revolves around a team of private detectives, Cassie Dewell (played by Kylie Bunbury who starred in Brave New World) and Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick, Lagertha from Vikings). The duo will investigate the disappearance of the Sullivan sisters (Natalie Alyn Lind and Jade Pettyjohn), who were kidnapped by long-haul trucker Ronald Pergman (Brian Geraghty). John Carroll Lynch also plays a key role as highway patrol Rick Legarski.

We will be updating this spoiler-free report every week with new details about the filming locations of the show:

Big Sky house
Dewell and Hoyt Private Investigations office is located in a baby clothing store called Watermelon in Fort Langley. Fort Langley is a cute town that has been used as a location for many shows and movies produced in the Vancouver area including Riverdale, Sabrina, and Home Before Dark. We also found Cassie's house located very close to the office in Church St.

The town in Helena Montana
Big Sky was also filming scenes in Downtown Vancouver. After the fight in the Hammerhead bar, the girls recover from their wounds in the fictional Lewis and Clark medical clinic that was set up in an empty store on Homer Street.

Squamish Forest and Pitt Meadows
The great outdoors shown in the series were filmed in the Squamish Valley. The road less traveled through Yellowstone, where Natalie and Grace are intercepted by Ronald, looks like the gorgeous arboreal rainforest near Squamish. This moss-covered forest was also featured in a scene of Leonardo DiCaprio's The Revenant.

Dirty Spoon restaurant
It's not clear where is located the Dirty Spoon diner. The exterior looks a bit like the Deroche General Store at 41679 Lougheed Hwy near Deroche.

Service station truck parking lot in Hope
The truck stop is the Esso Gas Station located in the outskirts of Hope. The city is located 96 miles (154 km) east of Vancouver, in the gorgeous Fraser Valley.

This scene with Cody Hoyt (Ryan Phillippe) from the first episode was shot at the Hatzic Prairie Market, located in the middle of nowhere at 10814 Farms Rd in Fraser Valley.

Church of the Glory and Transcendence
The Church of the Glory and Transcendence building from the third episode is the VanDusen Botanical Garden visitors center in West Side, Vancouver.

Sheriff office
The Lewis and Clark County sheriff's office is the historic Fort Langley Community Hall. It may be familiar as this is the same building where Riverdale's Town Hall was filmed.

    1. Had found this on Google Earth yesterday along with the farm with all the barns where the girls were being held before being moved but didn't have time to get back on here until now. Few more scenes from s1e05 shot in this area too but where in the world is 'The All In?'

    3. Sorry, didn't want to repeat the Dirty Spoon as the post before me is correct that it's at 10814 Farms Road. The farm where the girls were held is on Stave Lake Road just before it runs into Dale Road. 49.1996154, -122.2668266 should put you right on top of the barn the girls held in. The bridge covered with leaves that Cassie and Jenny cross on the way to encounter Legarski is just to the north of the Dirty Spoon .24km
      Hope someone finds or knows where The All In is at, I've spent to many hours scouring Google Earth and Apple Maps trying to locate it.
