Indian Dunes is correct for the Twilight Zone (and a bunch of other stuff including Ba Ba Blacksheep) but that's Castaic Junction, north L.A. County.

Seem to remember that portions of Sideways was filmed in Oxnard. Big Sky Movie Ranch (Simi Valley) was the location to Bonanza. The Paramount Movie Ranch near Chatsworth Peak was Gunsmoke's main street, but now we're back in L.A. County again.

In TV commercials I constantly recognize places like Oxnard Shores Park, the beach view of Santa Cruz Island, Oxnard's downtown Historic District, PCH near Mugu Rock to the big sand dune, and Fillmore's downtown railway visuals. Highway 126 near Piru and the town itself is often depicted as a faraway country village or other "out in the sticks" location.

Little House may have been in part filmed in Tuolomne County, but at least the TV show was also filmed in Simi Valley at the north end of Tapo Canyon Road. In fact the buildings still stood until only a few years ago when they were consumed in a brush fire.

Were portions of M.A.S.H. filmed in Camarillo? The main set was in Malibu Creek State Park (L.A. County).

Yes, according to a films and television shows database portions of M.A.S.H. were filmed in the Camarillo area but it didn't go into further detail.
