Visit the Gunsmoke Movie Set

Kanab, Utah

based on 1 reviews


Added by Crystal Sibson

Gunsmoke was one of the longest running prime-time television shows airing from 1955 to 1975

The television series of Gunsmoke was an American classic.  635 episodes aired on prime time television over the course of twenty years, from 1955 to 1975.  The movie set was the largest set constructed in the Kanab area.  After the filming ended, the buildings were not maintained and became heavily damaged.  Due to the state of disrepair, you can no longer access the buildings.  However, they are still visible from the road and offer great photo opportunities.  Whether you are on a road trip through Southern Utah, or you're a Gunsmoke fan, this is a really cool place to stop and snap a few photos.

The movie set is cool to see, but I wish you could get closer to the old buildings. It's fenced off on private property. I imagine this is due to the weathered state of the buildings which are falling apart and collapsing.
