Splugeon Shelter | Kahurangi National Park

There’s not many of the remnants of a more rugged past left in the national park but Splugeon Shelter is one of them.

How many DOC huts still have a dirt floor? And Splugeon has a roll-up plastic wall, ie, ventilation tends to the excessive, unlike the other shelters on the Karamea-Leslie, which tend to the opposite extreme.
