Stayed at Mama Gertie's over a long weekend trip to Asheville. Easy access to the interstate and a quick trip to downtown - about 10 minutes. We stayed about half way up in a pull through site. Good space between sites, about average. Campground was clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is located on the side...

I read a lot of campground reviews before booking Mama Gertie's, and I am very happy we ended up there. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the grounds are easy to navigate in a car and well kept, and the bathrooms are glorious - the best I've seen at a campground. We stayed in a tent site, which had...

This park is among the very best I have visited. Just an outstanding facility. Beautiful park with sites terraced up the side of a mountain. Be prepared for a steep climb into the park. Sites are spaced to allow plenty of room. Road is paved and sites are mostly graveled although we were on one that was paved. Everything is...

We had a site that was located on the top tier of the campground and what a view! Have to admit it was steep getting there but can't wait to return! The bathhouse was spotless and likewise the laundry. The owners are great and friendly. I'll throw this in....If you like bbq, visit Okie Dokie BBQ just down the mountain....

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...
