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.

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

As a family, we have decided that camping cabins are our new favorite thing. All the fun of camping without the sleeping bags!That being said, Mama Gertie's will be a favorite spot for a very long time. Our cabin was immaculate and the site was gorgeous--right on a beautiful stream. The facilities near the camping cabins (I never visited the... More

I would love to keep this place a secret........but here it goes. We will be coming back very frequently!! The newly constructed area is absolutely incredible! It is a gem of a hideaway just outside of Asheville. Very close to so many of the area attractions. You may have a hard time leaving the campground though! The views from our... More

The view from the camp sites at the area at the top of this RV park are just breathtaking! They are adding new sites with decks overlooking the mountains. This is our first stay in this area and i could just hold up here and relax.

Very, very pleased with the tent site we stayed at for 7 nights and the cabin for two nights. The staff was friendly and helpful. Frankly, I think it is GREAT that children are not allowed. Best of all, the bathrooms and showers were immaculately clean. Very impressed! Quiet, lovely and conveniently located.
