Where was Gunsmoke filmed?

Gunsmoke was filmed in various locations. Many outdoor scenes were shot in Johnson Canyon near Kanab, Utah, with others in Arizona and South Dakota. Some of the show also shot at the famous Paramount Ranch, just outside of Los Angeles. Sadly, that set was destroyed by the California wildfires in 2018. However, a replica of the Hollywood set was created just outside of Kanab. This set is perhaps the biggest movie set ever constructed in this area. Visitors can view it from the road, but it is not accessible because the buildings are in disrepair. Even as they collapse, these old buildings conjure the spirit of the legendary show.
