This was our first trip in our new class A motorhome and we could not have picked a better place to stay. Eric and Christie (the hosts) we absolutely wonderful - Christie spent time with us telling us the best places to hike, and Eric was nice enough to come give our toad a jump as the battery was dead...

When you book a camp ground for a week you hope that it is nice. And, Mama Gertie's did not disappoint! Our experience was great. The space was overlooking the mountains with a hedge of trees between spaces. The bath house, laundry, camp store were immaculate.You could tell that a lot of work went into the upkeep. Everything worked and...

We stayed here for 7 nights. The bathrooms and showers were extremely clean. The sites were average size and most sites had small shrubs planted between them to help give some privacy. They also provided very clean grills to use on top of the fire pits. There was a fenced dog area, which was very nice. There are 'doggie bags'...

We travel a ton in our Motorhome and Mama Gertie's is one of our favorite places to stay! The staff is top-notch and the park is awesome! There is a lower portion and an upper; we've only had the privilege to stay down below. The upper section is closed during the winter, but it is on the hillside it has...

It was quite an uphill climb to get to the campground and even more uplifting when we got there. The staff was friendly and personable. The sites were beautiful. the only disappointment was that the scenic sites at the top were not open yet we were too early in the season. WiFi reception was good and they personally guided you...

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....
