The hit is a mere $15 and I would call it more of a wilderness lodge than a hut. While not a huge fan of the Copland Track this is a great DOC hut facility next to some natural springs and ringed by snowcapped mountains. Its rained hard while I was there and I would advise splurging on the hut over the campsite (grassy and exposed) unless you are certain of the weather (and who is on the West Coast?)
