Bodie Ghost Town
Gold was discovered in Bodie in 1859 and a town
was establish shortly thereafter. The mine
operated until the early 1900s and at one point the city
held a population of ten thousand. Bodie is now a
state park and is maintained as its was in 1960s.
This is the real old west as it was in the gun fighter
days. Bodie is located off of US 395 on CA 270
just south of Bridgeport. On the west
side of Bridgeport is Twin Lakes. Take the Twin
Lakes Rd to a wonderful fishing lake tucked into a
fantastic mountain setting.
