Tips

  • Call the California Park Service at Bodie for park hours and weather conditions: (760) 647-6445.
  • The last three miles of California 270 is a graded dirt road; passable, but requiring slower going than the ten-mile paved section you first encounter when leaving US 395.
  • Bodie has minimal public facilities and no overnight lodging for travelers. Bridgeport, six miles north, and Lee Vining, 12 miles south, are the closest towns with hotels and motels.
  • At various times throughout the summer, local events are held at Bodie. Check the Bridgeport Chamber of Commerce for current schedules.
  • Summers in Bodie are pleasant. Being on the fringe between high desert and Sierra foothills, the air is thin. Take it easy walking around Bodie (altitude 8345 ft. above sea level). During the snow season, check with the Park Service for road conditions in and out of the park.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
