Lonely Lake Hut | Kahurangi National Park
Lonely Lake Hut is similar in size to Adelaide Tarn Hut, ie, a rather compact shed, but the lack of a fourth bunk means there is actually somewhere to sit. Slightly claustrophobic with the full complement in the bunks due to a lack of windows, there is one, and an open door I guess.
The view down the valley to the Tasman Wilderness at the heart of Kahurangi is great, the lake, umm, maybe less inspiring than Adelaide Tarn.
There is a sheltered campsite nearby under the beech trees but it might flood in heavy rain.
