Bookings not required - first come, first served
The hut has a radio that is monitored by Arthur’s Pass Visitor Centre during office hours, 7 days a week.
There is a wood stove in the hut for heating but you'll need your own cooker and utensils.
Before you go, buy 1 Serviced Hut Ticket (green) or 3 Standard Hut Tickets (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put these in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass for unlimited use at most Serviced and Standard huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
