To get there I drove a couple of kilometres out of Lake Tekapo and turned right down Godly Peaks Road. This is the same road that takes you to the turn off to the Mt John Observatory. It also takes you to Lake Alexandrina.
There was a small area off the road where I pulled over to take some photos overlooking Lake Tekapo.
The road is reasonably narrow and windy, but it's sealed. Both sides of the road were bordered with lupins. Lots and lots of gorgeous, colourful lupins.
After about 10 kilometres, a left hand turn takes you onto a gravel road, which leads to Lake McGregor.
We were escorted along by an easy going hare, who decided to bob along the road in front of us - I slowed right down hoping it would run to the side of the road and race up the hill. But nope, It was determined to slowly jog (do hares even jog?) along the road. Not in any hurry.
The campsite was mostly filled with small vans most probably camping overnight. There are a block of toilets and parking was on hard, level gravel.
The campsite looks over Lake McGregor, which is bordered with willows and lupins.
Lake McGregor is fed from Lake Alexandrina and then flows into Lake Tekapo.
We headed back along the same road that we drove in.
In the distance I noticed trials of dust and stopped to watch several trekking horses make their way to another paddock to graze amongst the lupins.
I watched them until the sun had almost dipped below the mountains ... it was time to head home.
The paddocks turned a gorgeous golden colour - the perfect end to another fabulous day in the MacKenzie Country.
