We travel with a 5th wheel and have stayed in lots of RV parks and campgrounds. Mama Gerties is at the top of the list. Eric and Christy do a fabulous job of managing the park, very friendly and really keep the place spotless. Showers, bathrooms, and laundry are the cleanest we have ever seen. They are on the side...

EXTREMELY CLEAN!! Perfect location, right off the interstate. Convenient to Asheville and Biltmore. Our cabin was right by the creek and we could hear the water right from our porch. The fire ring and grill were conveniently located and the cabin was clean and spacious. The fan in the room was a nice touch. Owners were super friendly. There was... More

Just returned from a visit to Asheville and so glad I chose this beautiful campground. It's convenient to Asheville and the freeway, but is tucked away in a spectacular forest setting that is quiet and tranquil. Of the many features of the campground, the spaciousness of the lots was exceptional. Privacy is provided through the tiered arrangement of each site... More

I am not a camper, but friends talked me into it. I must say it was a very nice experience. We stayed in one of the cabins which was very clean. The bathrooms and showers were also very clean. There was washers and dryers and a game room and gift shop. The staff were all very nice. Our friends who... More

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.
