TWILIGHT FILMING LOCATION Silver Falls Park (2) Deer at Pond
The opening sequence of the Twilight movie includes a deer in the woods standing at a small pond surrounded by trees, ferns and foliage. The deer becomes alert to something else in the woods. It turns and takes off on a run. I had read that they filmed this shot in the park near the Howard Creek Horse Camp. They used the horse corals for the deer they brought in. The area includes a large parking area which they used for all the production trucks and vehicles. I didn’t have to walk very far on the path to find a small creek which formed a pond like area at one end. It looked like it could have been the right spot.
This is also the location for the Oregon Film Trail sign for Twilight filming in the park.
