VOC Hut Registration

Welcome to the new VOC Hut Registration Board!


If you know you will be at a VOC Hut at a given time please post here to let people know. Registration for visitation of the Hut’s is an important part of coordinating the shared use of the facilities and with your participation on the registration board we can make sure that everyone who vists our Huts can leave with phenomenal memories and quirky stories.

Please keep in mind that this is a registration board and not a reservation board. You are registering to tell people that you are going, but also to receive information in case the hut gets too full for your liking. Sometime the huts are brewed to the brim. Other times, you might be the only one there. Since the VOC Huts are classified as emergency shelters, no matter how full the hut gets there is always room for one more. This registration board helps everyone to coordinate use and hopefully avoid over-crowding issues.

If you are a commercial or non-governmental organization, please first contact the current VOC President at [email protected] before posting on the message board. This allows us to best coordinate your usage of the site with other users. The activities must be in accordance with federal and provincial law and the VOC Hut Management Plan.

Managing wilderness huts can be expensive! The VOC kindly requests that public users contribute to our ongoing upkeep of the huts through a $10/night donation. If you would like to contribute more to the maintenance of the huts, consider purchasing a membership! With a VOC membership, you can visit all our huts for free! (2017 memberships are $40 for student members and $60 for associate members). Donations can be sent to us by mail or put it in the blue lock box inside the hut.  This money is exclusively for goods to maintain the huts and their trails and all of the hard labor is done by volunteers.

If you are interested in doing trail work on your way up to any of the Huts the VOC has a complete set of Tools that you can freely borrow. View our complete inventory of tools at our Tool Inventory page.

Non-VOC Huts


The Huts listed here are not built or maintained by VOC, but if you want to indicate that you will be using it, you are welcome to do so. For some of these Huts, such as Kieth’s, most users don’t end up registering here. It’s best not to be surprised if you find the hut full and bursting with people who did not register here.
