Wow what a hidden gem. The road in is very rough but so worth it. Spent the whole day wandering around this ghost town. A must see if you are in the area.
I visited Bodie in 2004 with family. We saw my great grandfathe
r's mine, house and grave. Also went inside the school house where father's school work was displayed on the wall and even found his de...sk - we think. Planning to visit again soon. Great trip and beautifull y preserved ghost town!

The road to Bodie may be a little dusty and bumpy, but it is well worth the drive. Old buildings,
and relics a plenty to view. The town is in arrested decay, which has slowed the onset of time. For a ...small glimpse back in time spend the day walking it's streets. Take in the view from boothill. I return every year and see something I hadn't seen before
I visited Bodie while in university
. That was in the late 80's, and am still fascinated by it! My friend's family, the Kane's (sp) own a gold mine up behind the town, and live in Bridgeport , so we we...re able to go up and around the mine area. " Goodbye God, I'm Going to Bodie!" There are ice skates in the museum with his grandfathe r's name on them ! It was so cool. Loved the Victorian hearse, especially !
My husband and I went here during our honeymoon trip to California
. 13 miles of bumpy, gravel road led us to this amazing 'frozen in time' ghost town. We only had 30 minutes to look around, since they... were closing, so we basically ran thru the whole thing. Amazing! If we go back, we'll plan a lot more time. Would highly recommend this place! The 13 miles is worth it!
Visited Bodie while on a road trip around California
. Bodie totally captured my imaginatio n and that of my husband and 2 girls aged 6 & 10. It was late October 2013 and the snow was coming down so we ...only managed to stay for about 30 minutes. Amazing atmosphere , we will most definitely come back one, it's a long way from Carlisle, Cumbria, England but we'll be back, hopefully when its's not snowing! I think we got a photo of the Bodie Angel too! Will try and post it onto the page

I have been a few times. I think it’s beautiful!
Especially in the winter.
Great place to spend a couple of days living in the past and photo opportunit
ies abound. Been there in the 100° heat of the summer and 0° cold in a winter blizzard - it's a whole new ghost town under... 3 feet of snow. I have walked Bodie in the dust with dozens of tourists and I have ski toured Bodie in complete solitude. Numerous visits, many stories and lots of memories!
Bodie is a old Ghost Town (as some call it) but it was a Gold town that boomed in post California
gold rush days and in the 20th. century. At a elevation over 8 thousand ft. in the high deserts of the... Sierra Nevada Mountains northeast of Yosemite. Run now by the State of Ca. has maintained it's old structures and kept the way it was left. What's nice is it's isolation from most of the population of California . You won't find a gas station or anything but a rangers residence and a small room with books and stories about this town. It's place where history buffs & photograph ers love to roam around to return to a place where things were left lying around for us a century later mostly untouched. One of the few areas still standing and not commercial ized.

An excellent Ghost Town to visit where its location being a State Park has allowed an outdoor museum to develop and preserve these historic structure'
Bodie is truly a magical place! There are few places, at least in the United States, that holds such interest in mystery, as Bodie. It's a place you'll never forget if you spend more than 20 minutes there.
I'm just so enchanted by the history of this town and by the state of "arrested decay"they
keep it in. I couldn't NOT take photos! It has a pretty violent story but a story none the less and it's part... of the life in those days. I wanted to explore every inch of the place but we had to leave. I will be back.
