Costley Mill Park has seen many film and television productions over the past 40 years. Since the early 2000s dozens of shows have taken advantage of the facility’s rustic and natural settings – providing locations for rivers, shoals, woods, rock formations, and even an underground mine.
Use of the facility really increased once Rockdale County was designated as a Camera Ready community in 2010 and the park was actively promoted by the Film Rockdale office. Costley Mill Park has been a popular filming location for many block buster hits.
Some of the productions that used Costley Mill Park include An Actor Prepares, American Reunion, Coat of Many Colors, Devils Knot, Endless Love, Felt, ID Thief, Thank You For Your Service, Constantine, Greenleaf, Sleepy Hollow, The Originals, and Vampire Diaries.
