We had a wonderful time. Restrooms were clean and convenient, staff was super friendly and helpful. Cabin was cozy, with the sound of the water in the little creek flowing by. Would really love to do again!

By far our BEST camping experience... My wife let me pick our location and campground this time, and boy did Mama Gertie's meet and EXCEED our expectations. After reading all the reviews, we were happy to book it, but were a little skeptical about the cleaniness... Everybody wrote how clean it was, but we were taking it with a grain... More

We read the reviews and decided to take a chance. The park is easy to find and seems to well run. They have a gate which requires and access code to enter. That's a nice amenity. The geography is very hilly, and some of the site look a little challenging to get into. Our truck & travel trailer is 48... More

What a wonderful place to relax. In town for a lacrosse tournament (kids stayed with G-parent in another park) hubby and I got to spend 2 nights in one of the cabins. Spotless log cabin had all the room we needed. The fire pit ..and porch swing was all we needed to decompress the weeks activities. Though it did not... More

This park is awesome! It is impeccably maintained and the staff is fabulous. We stayed there for 2 months last summer and one month this summer in our 40 ft. 5th wheel. We were on the upper level (spot 36) with our own deck, complete with patio furniture and a porch swing! The views of the mountains and the valley... More

Staying here right now, views are spectacular from the upper sites. This campground is tiered and each level offers a different experience. Staff are exceptional, helpful and friendly. Landscape is beautiful, and well maintained. We are on the upper level and the only draw back at this time is there are no showers or laundry facilities, they are at the... More

The campground is very clean, well maintained and quiet. They are very friendly and helpful. Nice little store in case you need anything and very close to a grocery store. This was by far the best campground we've stayed at. The cabin had electric, ceiling fan and multiple beds. (I didn't love the plastic cover on the mattress however I... More

The campground is very clean, including the bath houses. The spots on top of the mountain offer picturesque views on top. However there are no trees for shade up there. The lower sites offer shade, but no views. The kids can not ride bikes here due to the fact that the campground is on the side of a mountain. The... More

Very clean, well maintained campground. Bathrooms and showers were private and spotless. Campsites were tiered and private with beautiful landscaping around each site. Bathrooms had electricity also. The campground is hilly so you need to be able to walk well. It was also very quiet and staff was extremely helpful. They take you out to the site and help you... More

Mama Gertie's is fabulous! Beautiful, quiet, convenient, great friendly staff. All sites and the grounds are beautifully landscaped and impeccably maintained. You can believe all the good reviews! We stayed in mountain top site #27 and had great mountain views. Love it!
