Behind the Scenes

One Tree Hill has officially wrapped for it’s final season and with that means several things.

  • No more studio tours of the One Tree Hill sets. They are gone. They have been torn down and they have sold off most if not all of the set props.
  • No more extraing for the show :(

Some Good News :)

  • Even though One Tree Hill is gone you can still visit many locations where filming took place. Below I will list a website with that includes addresses of those places.

How can I be an extra?

You cannot anymore. One Tree Hill has wrapped. There is no more filming so there is no more extraing needed for OTH.

What about the set tour?

No more set tour! The sets are gone. The studio currently is not offering any walking tours.

Do you know where the filming locations are?

Yes!  I do!  Yay, I know this answer!  I have been to Wilmington once (and soon twice) to see all the filming locations around Wilmington.  Before I went, I went to this page and printed out the map and addresses.  Once I got to Wilmington, I got a local map from our hotel and marked it down on the larger map so I got a good picture of what order we needed to do things in.

Where should I stay?

It’s probably the most expensive (except for the beach locations I’m sure), but The Hilton in downtown Wilmington is very close to several filming locations.  You can also see the RiverCourt across the water from some rooms.  There is nowhere to stay where you could walk to all of the locations so you have to drive either way.  Downtown is nice though because of the shopping and restaurants close by.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn at Medical Park which was not right downtown but it was extremely nice and not as expensive as the Hilton although we had to drive everywhere we went.  It was close to some of the houses, the mall and Keith’s Body Shop.  In fact, everything is within a 10 minute drive so there’s not really a bad location although I’ve heard some hotels are nicer than others.

The other two times we’ve/I’ve stayed at  Baymont Inn.  For the price – and breakfast, it was my favorite.

Here are some other reports I’ve found on this page this page:

i just stayed at the baymont inn for the charity game and really liked it ….great area and close to stuff

Sleep Inn, it was cheap , free breakfast, clean and right on market street by the walmart, real easy to get to

green tree inn is really sketchy, microwave smokes, smells bad, holes in the main bedspread, BUT its the hotel that nanny carrie took jamie to

Holiday Inn Express (on Van Campen right between College Road and Market St.) is really nice too.  (I like the other better though.)  It also has a free breakfast and free wireless.
