The Bodie Hills are a low mountain range in Mono County, California, in the United States. The Bodie Hills are between Bridgeport and the Nevada border, where they become the Bodie Mountains in Mineral County, Nevada. The Sierra Nevada lies to the west. The mining district and town of Bodie, California, is located in the Bodie Hills.

Early Native American peoples of the Mono tribe and Northern Paiute people inhabited this locale and engaged in trade with distant coastal tribes such as the Chumash in Southern California.
