Puketi Hut is located in the Puketi Recreation Area next to the Puketi Recreation Area Campsite.
There are several places that you can access the recreation area from. The recommended entry point is from SH10 approximately 600 m north of the Waipapa Township.
Turn left along Pungaere Road past the sign directing you to the Puketi Forest Park. Follow Pungaere Road for approximately 15 km. Take care as part of the road is gravelled. At a T-intersection, turn left, follow the road for about 2 km. The entrance of the recreation area will be on your right.
If using alternative routes, refer to local maps as there is no DOC signage at other possible entry points to the Puketi Forest.
