Mid Caples Hut | Caples Track, Greenstone Conservation Area

The recently rebuilt Mid Caples Hut is typical of the bigger huts that DOC is building on the secondary tracks around NZ, generous in space, firedoors on the two separate sleeping areas, double glazing, bigtime insulation, taps inside the hut, at least during summer, otherwise you need to go outside to the rainwater tank. And the big picture windows.

The view is also attractive, all in all a great place to stay for $15 a night.
