We stayed a week an loved it. Very dog friendly. It is a great base for the Asheville and surrounding areas. The sites are level and bathrooms clean. If you can stay on the hill for a better view. They are expanding and will have several more upper sites to stay in. I plan a return stay in a few... More

This is a gem of a campground. Owner are helpful and welcoming. The park is well laid out and very convenient to I-40 and close to restaurants, shopping etc. All amenities were excellent. Will stay here again.

This little hideaway is a true gem. We have camped here a few times and each time we are reminded why we continue to come back. The sites are level, they are stacked on a side of a mountain therefor you get the feel of being camping in the wilderness and not next to the next camper. The staff here... More

This campground is a gem! It is not only beautiful, clean, and well laid out but also super convenient to I-40 and all area attractions, stores and restaurants. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. You will enjoy the natural scenery and peacefulness of being in the mountains. They are adding more sites in the upper level of the campground... More

Best RV place ever! Beautiful clean pleasant. Such gorgeous area and the spaces are level clean and lovely. Laundry and showers are immaculate. Only problem is that people come back and you have to make reservations way ahead.

We had planned to stay at Mama Gertie's for the last 3 days of our vacation, but the federal government caused a change of plans by closing Lake Powhatan camping area. That turned out to be a blessing in disguise since Roxanne at Mama Gertie's was nice enough to find a site for us early. After having to spend 2... More

We enjoyed camping at Mama Gertie's campground. The landscape between the campers was well planned. The facilities was clean, organized and the lighting was great. The campground provided all that you would need. It was good to stop in an area with seniors in mine. The place is hilly but that just makes more of a challenge to get around.... More

This is one I wish I could keep to myself. All the good things reviewers have said here are true. The place is spotlessly clean, the service is perfect, the mountain atmosphere is gorgeous... and it is about to get better. I was given a golf-cart tour of the new sites on top of the mountain. We were actually above... More

We planned to stop at Mama Gerties, but forgot it was Labor Day weekend - so had to stay a few nights at another park (not bad, just ordinary) but on Monday we were able to move to Mama Gertoe's. What a wonderful experience - so beautiful, quiet, excellent shower and laundry, with an exchange library and computer hookups. I... More

Lovely! This is a hidden gem campground that I will frequent often in the future. I needed to book a campground that had beautiful, natural surroundings, yet close enough to civilization that my newbie camper guests would be amazed by. They commented on the lovely environment, then checked the bathrooms and showers next. They were pleased, and I was happy... More
