Dodger Hut | Ruataniwha Conservation Park
A cosy four bunk hut, with double-glazed windows, new compact woodburner, and stainless steel bench.
Still in the wide part of the valley, and possible to drive to in your four-wheel-drive if you are feeling like a challenge. It’s right in the heart of thar and deer territory, so no surprise it’s often used by hunters, although also finds favour with mountain climbers as a base camp.
