  • I Council to go there in the morning from the start, there is less crowded and you can access inside the site for parking. More you can more easily access photos without too many tourists on it as less world. Very nice very well preserved site I highly recommend

  • By the visit of Bodie you will get a very good impression from the life during the gold rush in the old days. Although only 5% from the original town is left the set up is very well done and impressiv...  more »
  • We went to Bodie during our honeymoon. Of the two roads which arrive at the village, the Navigator did take the shortest, it was also the most bumpy: 10 miles of dirt road that at times put the willies. The other route, on the way back, he was only 4 miles of dirt road less bumpy. Bodie is really a fascinating place, the price for entry is perhaps a bit high for what then actually it shows. The map, sold separately but almost necessary, explains the facts and the lives of families and the people of the town throughout its history, giving meaning to various buildings. Unfortunately, you can't enter practically anywhere, and many of the buildings inside have nothing special to see. It is definitely an attraction for tourists who want to take a picture with the Sheriff star or in a cell or at the counter of a saloon. From the Wild West enthusiast, I tried a bit of disappointment leaving Bodie, even with all the positive aspects of the place and the charm of discovery, I would have expected something more, because even the most iconic buildings of the west were closed or even no longer existed.
