We came in here for what was originally going to be a one night stay. But upon arrival we were overwhelmed by the establishment that we stayed a second night. We had a 43 ft toy hauler, and made it fine up to the second level. We can not say enough positive things about this place. It is by far...

The campground/campsite itself was fine however as the saying goes "don't judge a book by its cover". We experienced poor customer service from the owners related to late arrival. We had a 2 night booking, Sun. and Mon. We received an email reminding us that we had to check in by 6:00 p.m. Their web site does not say 'no...

Great place and good people. "Up Top" is worth the cost and drive, go slow. We were always looking out the front window to see the mountain tops or the clouds below. Close to just about everything and plenty to do. Good base for Biltmore House, Grove Park Inn and Blue Ridge Parkway. Be sure to tour Montrose and Black...

Prior to leaving on our road trip I did a check on TripAdvisor for a good campground in the Asheville area and when I came across Mama Gertie's, the reviews looked almost too good to be true. Well, now I'm staying there and I can tell you, with firsthand experience, they are spot on. Everything about this facility is spot...

This was our first trip in our new class A motorhome and we could not have picked a better place to stay.

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...
