We invite production companies and commercial photographers to consider Indiana Department of Natural Resources properties for film shoots, with the knowledge and understanding that our primary concern is managing and conserving the natural and cultural resources at our properties and that may or may not be compatible with filming requests.
All uses of DNR properties for commercial filming and photography require a license agreement. Some licensed uses may have associated fees.
