Palmer Lodge

Our own hunting lodge in the Lewis Pass is called Palmer Lodge. It sleeps 21, and has an excellent fire as well as kitchen and dining room facilities. You need to take your own cooking and other gear now due to thefts etc.


The Lodge is a good base for hunting all of the Lewis Pass area, including the Maruia / Rahu Saddle area. There is a small fee for the use of the lodge.
