Bookings not required - first come, first served
Ikawetea Forks Hut was built in 1962 by the New Zealand Forest Service to assist deer culling operations. Members of the Ruahine Deerstalkers Association helped upgrade the hut in 1990.
Before you go, buy 1 Standard Hut Ticket (blue for adults, yellow for youth) for each night's stay. Put this in the honesty box at the hut. Or buy a Backcountry Hut Pass that gives unlimited use at most Standard and Serviced huts for a 6 or 12 month period.
