In the period between 1950 and 1970 the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority constructed no fewer than 120 camps and work sites in the Snowy Mountains from Blowering in the north to Ginninderra near Canberra, Khancoban in the west, Pilot in the south and Cooma in the east.

In the area of Mount Kosciusko there were a total of 19 camps including ones at Island Bend, Crackenback, Smiggin Holes, Guthega, Spencers Creek and Perisher. In the years after the completion of work the roads into this area drew tourists and skiers so that now the old campsites of Perisher, Guthega and Smiggin Holes as well as Charlottes Pass and Mount Blue Cow have become the centre of Snowy Mountains skiing. All these sites are located above the snowline and consequently in winter they attract thousands of people both from Australia and from overseas.
