We made a reservation at this campground for a one night stay on our way to Florida nearly 3 weeks in advance. They did not ask for a credit card, but assured us our cell phone number was deposit enough. This seemed shady right out of the gate. Coming out of DC that morning, we had a long drive ahead...

Oh my goodness! We just can't say enough wonderful things about this place. We can't wait to go back next year! The campground is amazing. The facilities are the cleanest we've ever seen! They do a wonderful job keeping up, even when they were packed and all sites full. The tent sites are under tree canopies, and have gravel laid... More

We stayed in a mountain top RV site with our 5th wheel. The view was outstanding. The mornings and evenings were quiet and cool despite the above average temps. The site was large and level. We enjoyed walking the hills in the park.

When we called to make a reservation, Eric asked if we were okay with a more expensive site- mountain view. Of course, we are camping in the mountains for the beauty! How lucky were we! Our site overlooked the most beautiful vista. Up top is very high up a steep drive. If you need the facilities, it is a good... More

Great getaway camping at Mama's. Quiet, picturesque location, and well maintained by the staff. We were on the 2nd level, and in a nice shady spot. Will go back and try to get to the top level for the high level views of the mountains.

This is our 6th season RV camping and this place is absolutely one of the best! We stayed on one the mountaintop sites. The landscaping, view and solitude were outstanding! It was a bit intimidating pulling the RV up to the top, but now that I know what to expect it will be fine next time. The descent was no... More

We reserved the mountain side RV site and it was breathtaking! Beautiful view of the smoky mountains, fire pit, patio table and chairs and a swing. Wish we had stayed longer! You must arrive by 6:00 or the office will be closed. We cut it close with 3 minutes to spare!

........about Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground! We enjoyed it so much that we booked a week during fall colors. If you want a place for solitude and a professionally run camp, go here. We want to thank Eric for helping us with a small problem we had getting our tow dolly to our space. We want to especially thank Chris for... More

First off, my husband and I are from the flatlands of Florida. Some of the reviews were a little scary about the driving conditions in the campground. Let me say we had no problem at all. Just listen to the camp personnel and it's a breeze. This park has personality from the personnel, to the sites, to the cleanliness, to... More

What a nice place! Beautifully landscaped into the existing trees and rhododendrons of the mountain. Cabins are no frills but an easier way than setting up a tent. Very friendly helpful staff/owners. SUPER CLEAN bathrooms and showers. Would like a little more for kids to do (have a tether ball, horseshoes, and a few pinball machines) but very peaceful and... More
