Camping – NZMCA – Ardmore | Licenced To Retire
At the time of writing there are 41 NZMCA camps dotted around New Zealand with Sarah and I having stayed at 26 of these. I hope to one day be able to say that we have stayed at them all but when you live in the city where two are located it's hard to know if we will ever stay at either of these camps. A couple of weeks ago we drove out west to visit the camp at Tui Glen and you can read that post by clicking here but this week it was time to brave the Southern motorway to visit the NZMCA camp based out at the Ardmore airfield. The location on the Southern side of the city would be a handy base for those who are looking for a stopping off point close to the city but far enough away from the main hustle and bustle that you can feel you are really back in the country. It's about a 10 minute drive from the motorway off ramp if you are coming from either the north or south and fairly well signposted. Coming from the always popular Rays Rest it's about an hours drive. Access to the camp
