Very guiet, nice cool evenings in July; felt like... 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.

This is a very pleasant campground on the hillside east of Swannanoa. I'm a tent camper, and was pleased that the few tent sites are separate from the RV section. The sites are pea gravel, so be sure to have a decent sleep pad! I found I didn't mind the gravel after the typical Carolina mountains mid-afternoon thunder-deluge, when I... More

Mama Gertie's is simply a pristine RV resort. I live and travel in a motor coach. The resort is quaint, extremely well maintained, tucked away on a mountain away from noise, hustle and bustle of cars and people, yet only 10 minutes from downtown Asheville. Step outside of your camper or coach to hear the wind rustling in the breeze,... More

I enjoyed every inch of this place-the tiered levels the walking Paths the trees and the most personable staff. So thoughtfully designed in every detail. For an Alaskan exploring the south this is a breath of fresh air. If get back to this area will stay nowhere else.

This was my first time on vacation in an RV so I don't have a huge basis for comparison, but I loved staying here. The guy working (Eric, I think his name was) was so friendly and helpful. Getting to the interstate was really quick but it felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. The Wi-Fi was nice... More
