Everything was easy! The lady who checked us in and the man who took us to our site were both very nice! We only stayed one night so we didn't get to use many of the accommodations or check out the whole campground. Our site was very clean and neat. We checked out the laundry, shower rooms, bathrooms, and library... More

This might be the greatest NC "secret"!!! Everything is so great & so clean. The bath houses are located inside with individual locking doors so it's very convenient for an opposite sex parent to take an older child for a shower! Will return!

This is our second visit here. We highly recommend it. Christy and Eric, who both work here, go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to meet your camping needs. The campground is located close to both Black Mountain and Asheville. Ideal for cycling or driving to Biltmore and all the scenic places in Buncome County.

I chose this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and proximity to The Cove (Billy Graham Training Center). The road it's on certainly earns its name! We were in site 18, very private and quiet--just the way we like it. The bathrooms were spotless. The staff were very helpful, getting us and our little trailer situated without any disasters or...

We spent 10 nights here to explore the area and enjoy the beautiful fall color. The campground is immaculate and well planned. We really enjoyed the space, privacy, and view from our site at the top of the mountain. We will definitely be back.

We've stayed at Mama Gertie's a few times. It's close enough to downtown Asheville and all of our favorite hiking spots, making it a great location. The bathrooms are the cleanest I've seen at a campground, although the shower heads leave a lot to be desired. One of those takes a few minutes to get all of the conditioner out... More

This is by far the best Rv Resort we have ever visited. We stayed in one of the spaces at the top of the mountain (36) and have never had the views, privacy and space amenities offered here. Absolutely hate to leave. Will come back here whenever we can, but the colors of fall are amazing!

We spent three nights camping and had an excellent time. Staff was excellent and the campsites were superb. Will definitely recommend to anyone who asks. We stayed in a tent and had plenty of room as well as excellent amenities

This was one of my favorite campgrounds of all time! It's the happy medium between primitive camping and campgrounds that are over-run by kids on summer vacation. We thought the showers were extremely impressive! They are very, very private. Each shower is individually sectioned off, and locks with it's own full door. They are also spotlessly clean! The bathrooms were... More
