Basins Hut, Craigieburn Forest Park
Originally a typical SF70 New Zealand Forest Service hut in reasonable condition, it has subsequently had large porches on the front and east side added.
Just across Basin Creek from the older and more primitive Old Basins Hut.
Not used much, although it is accessible by four-wheel drive.
