Bodie Hills Topo Map
Bodie Ghost Town is the most popular & best preserved historic mining camp in California. Winter months are cold, windy, and often snowy. Late summers can get hot. Plan accordingly.
No services, no pavement, no big trees. Very remote location. Abundant free, boondocking camps in this high desert region, so make sure to get a camp fire permit from the local rangers in Lee Vining or Bridgeport, CA
