Explore this historic ghost town in Bodie Historic South Park, just 65 miles northeast of Mammoth Lakes, CA.

Bodie exploded as a gold mining town in 1876, after the discovery of gold ore. It is estimated that Bodie produced over $34 million worth of gold over the years. The town was finally abandoned in 1942.

While driving on 395, turn onto 270 and follow it 17 mi to the ghost town of Bodie. The last three miles are gravel, but it is accessible even for two wheel drive vehicles. Park fees are assessed upon entry in to Bodie. Once in Bodie feel free to roam about the city exploring the abandoned buildings. The entire town of Bodie is saturated with an air of mystery.

Reviews

An older woman at our campground in Yosemite told us about Bodie. Glad we took her recommendation, it was amazing. Truly frozen in arrested decay.
