Bright Cabin and Caravan Park, Camp Crusty, started life in the late 1930s as a camp for loggers working in the local pine plantations. During the 1950s it morphed into a camp that hosted school groups and clubs. More recently it has become a destination for tourists travelling to the Bright area looking for a natural holiday experience. Camp Crusty has a rich history being one of the most historic areas in the Alpine Region. We have a range of accommodation styles to suit your needs and budget.

We got what I can only describe as a very dusty car park spot.

Comfortable Stay
I was hesitant to stay here due to the recent reviews. I personally enjoyed my stay and think most recent reviews were a bit dramatic. This site is close to everything, the Bright village, riding trails, or to take a scenic drive up the alpine way to Mount Hotham. The facilities were older but clean during my stay and the hot water shower was fantastic. The only downside I guess was gumtrees and their litter of branches everywhere. The ground was dry but so is most places around here at the moment. I would stay here again if I come back to this area.

Not recommended
Really expensive place for dirty toilets and really small no grass on the hill spots. I wouldn’t recommend and I will not go here again. The staff was so lovely though. Camp site is right next to a main road. Spots are uneven and you have to literally sleep on a hill and they are so close to each other also they are so tiny we had not enough space for two tents, one table and fire pit. Also I picked the place because they allow fire pits but even though I paid lots of money I had to hire the fire pit and wood costs $100.

Basic but enough for a short stay
Not a bad site. Pretty basic and not kept the best but it’s got everything you need for a night or two.

Crusty by name, crusty by nature.
Camp crusty, well, we really should have paid more attention to the name. Not sure if it was the crammed and small camping site, the prison cell of cabins or the ‘crusty’ showers, but this just wasn’t it. Pay attention to the reviews, not the photos (hint: false advertising, grass is non-existent and it resembled the Sahara dessert rather than lush greenery). Our only option was to pitch the swags on gravel and hope it didn’t get windy as there was no chance pegs were going into that ground. The only positive was the lively fellow mates residing in the cells next to us. Proceed with caution.
