Olden Camping Gytri officially opened in 1961, then with the name Gytri Camping. Name change was made in the year 2000, due to name change between two campsites in the village (Gytri and Gryta). Gytri Camping was the first campsite in Oldedalen (on the road between Olden and Briksdal).
The campsite was a family business until 2015, when it was started by Leiv Gytri in 1961 and in 1990 taken over by his son John Arild Gytri, who ran the place until he died in 2015. New owners took over in December 2015, Roger Sveum and Kristin Fonn Sveum, they moved from Hamar and started the season in May 2016.
When Leiv Gytri started up, there was only room for a few units. The campsite was cultivated by hand. In the period 1965-75, 3 cabins were built.
The sanitary facilities consisted of an outdoor toilet. In 1995, a new sanitary facility was built that is also adapted for disabled people. There was a separate space for emptying caravans and campers. As the years have passed, the Gytri family has constantly improved the campsite, given its well-being, comfort and, not least, the future of tourism.
