‘Mountain Monsters’ is an entertaining show that leaves the viewers divided in opinion. Many viewers enjoy watching the show for the antics and fun, while others wonder if there is any truth to what they see on screen. The show is a cryptozoology-themed reality television series that follows the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (A.I.M.S.) team.
It comprises a band of hunters and trappers from the Appalachian region, who research and track unidentified mysterious creatures that people claim to have seen. The aim is to either capture or prove the non-existence of the creature. The show takes us through various landscapes, including woods, lakes, mountains, and valleys, which must make the fans curious to know where the series is filmed. Let us find out!
Mountain Monsters Filming Locations
‘Mountain Monsters’ is filmed in different parts of West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. The series covers the Appalachian Region, which spans a large area of eastern North America. Here are the details on the filming locations!
West Virginia, also called the “Mountain State,” is where most of the show’s early episodes are set. The members of A.I.M.S. talk to locals to learn more about the so-called creatures they are after. The team was founded by John “Trapper” Tice, who passed away in December 2019. He trained the A.I.M.S. team in hunting and tracking methods that use traditional knowledge and modern technology.
