This was our second visit to the campground and we loved it even more this time. It is so well maintained, the staff is outstanding and the views of the mountains are spectacular! We made reservations for next year and can't wait to go back. In addition, the location of the campground is perfect for accessing all the fun stuff... More

This mountain side campground was the perfect place to spend a week. All the sites looked nice and grounds are well kept and just beutifully surrounded by NC forest. If available get one of the top scenic sites!!! Worth every penny. One draw back, showers & toilets are at bottom of the campground. And amazing views require some real climbing!... More

I just got back from a weekend getaway at Mama Gerties campground in Swannanoa, NC. I got space #32 on the upper level and it was well worth it. Jan and the staff were great, the wifi was strong, but oh man, that view. Wow. It was an enjoyable task navigating the hill to get to the site, but most... More

Wonderful place to camp. Secluded, quiet, clean and reasonable. The views from the upper grounds are terrific. And, the host & hostess were extremely accommodating. They even have a nice fitness center which we used a lot. We liked this place so much we made a reservation to come back next year for a month!

My wife and I were trying to decide if we would enjoy the RV / camping experience so we rented a 30 ft Class-C motor home. After reviewing tons of campgrounds in the Ashville, NC area, we decided to try Mama Gerties. Turned out to be a great choice. Being inexperience RVers we didn't really know what to expect, From...

As campground owners, we are very particular about where we spend the little off-time we get. This is a top-notch park; well run and maintained. Beautiful bus sites with spectacular views. Perfect accessibility to all local attractions.

FANTASTIC campground! Located just a mile off 40, 15 min east of Asheville and situated on beautiful property. Sites 18-21 have babbling stream right beside site, other sites are well landscaped and provide ample room between rvs. Mountain view sites are breathtaking and will a wide and well-graded road makes it easy for large rvs to reach. Staff could not... More

If you like staying in quietness but want to be close to highways and supermarkets, this is your place. We hired a very spacious cabin for 4 nights and really loved it. Location next to a small stream, close to the very clean washing and restrooms.

I traveled in a 25FT RV as first time renter/driver. The staff at Mamma Gerties was fantastic. The facilities were clean, grounds were quiet, other visitors VERY nice, close to all of our area activities. Traveled with 12 and 13 year old who found it a bit boring but it was their first camping experience and I made them put... More

We found Mama Gertie's on Trip Advisor...and the ratings were absolutely true! We chose site 23 on the top of a magnificent hill. It was AMAZINGLY quiet and quaint. The bathhouse was clean and well-decorated! The staff was fabulous! The sites are FLAT and well-maintained! We are so excited to return to Mama Gertie's in the future. Close to everything!... More
