About Hut Registration

If you know you will be at a VOC Hut at a given time please post here to let people know. Note that this is not a reservation and does not grant you exclusive use, or even priority over others who may not have posted, but it's "the right thing to do." Registering here will help prevent multiple large groups from arriving at the hut at the same time. The rule for VOC huts is that there is always room for one more (this works both ways). When registering, please leave some sort of contact info on the page. If you don't want to expose your real email address, just sign with a link to your user:talk page using ~~~~ or ~~~.

Also note that there is no priority based on order of registration. Feel free to register yourself anyway even if the hut is already listed as "full", just be prepared to deal with the situation if it turns out to be crowded. Not all parties who register to use a hut actually end up going, so there is some leeway for "overbooking".

We suggest non-VOC members give a donation of $5 per person per night, you could send it to us or put it in the blue lock box inside the hut (Note: the Burton Hut in Sphinx Bay does not have a donation box, as it is within Garibaldi Park, but we still maintain it, and your donation is welcome).

Brew Hut Registration

The Brew Hut sleeps 12 in relative comfort, but has been known to sleep up to 16 people without putting anyone on the floor - 13 upstairs and 3 downstairs on the sleeping bench.

Burton Hut Registration

The Burton Hut sleeps 10 comfortably and 15 is cozy. Make sure Garibaldi lake is frozen before you try to cross it. Typically it is frozen by the start of February.

Harrison Hut Registration

The Harrison Hut can handle about 15 people. In winter the road from Pemberton to Meager will likely not be driveable, making the (winter) access long. Bridge across Meager is now good. As of July 2009 The Lilooet River bridge at the turnoff to Meager Creek FSR is gated between 8pm and 8am. In the morning, the hot springs caretaker unlocks and opens it so that the cars can drive through.
