Very nice campground. Located very close to Asheville. Place is very clean. Sites re all level. Not overly huge but I was here to go out and see Asheville. Great home base. Only have digital cable so make sure your tv is set for it.

We chose the tip top site that has a fantastic view of the mountains! We have a deck that overlooks a gorge. The bath house is spotless and it is very quiet. This upper site is well worth the extra cost!

When the worst part of an RV resort is that you can't see the full moon because of all the trees in your site, you know you are in a good place. Some good fun getting the rv into site but they guided us in. Site is first class - hookups, fire pit, flat pad, and huge trees. People at...

We had to move our arrival date to 2 days later due to a hurricane in our area. Even though October is their busiest time of year, they managed to accommodate us and make us feel welcome. Cleanest restrooms I've ever seen! Nice amenities. We will be back.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground was one of our favorite campgrounds. The location is excellent. It’s secluded, quiet, and you’re nestled among the trees. The sites are very clean and well maintained. We had noticed that they were inspecting and cleaning the site next to us very closely after departure of a camper, washing the tables, etc. The best part was...

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights recently and absolutely fell in love with it. We camped in a tent. The tent sites all include an electrical outlet, fire pit and picnic table. No roughing it here! Clean bathrooms were a very short walk away (they have 3 different bath houses located throughout the camp). The "designer" bathrooms were...

We had an amazing 2 night stay! We have a 33ft travel trailer and stayed on the 3rd tier overlooking the mountains! The grade going up is a bit step, but is well worth it!! I think we might compare everything from here on out to our amazing view at Mama Gertie's!! Thanks!!!

I stayed at MG's with my son - camping...for the purpose of visiting my step-son at UNC - A and enjoying Asheville and environs. The site was without reservation, one of the very best I have ever stayed at.... the pitches were private yet conveniently located for water and the restrooms, the owners were fabulous - welcoming and super helpful......

We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds but this place is off the hook. You should come here just to camp even if you weren't planning on coming to the area. Stay at top of the hill for sure. People are nice. Landscaping is unbelievable even the rocks are clean. The bathroom is better than a Ritz Carlton. The...

This was our second summer stay at Mama Gertie's and both visits were exceptional. All the great reviews you read are indeed the "real deal". The campground is absolutely beautiful with great landscaping and spectacular views. It is very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. You don't even want to leave each day to go do other things in the area.
