Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground was one of our favorite campgrounds. The location is excellent. It’s secluded, quiet, and you’re nestled among the trees. The sites are very clean and well maintained. We had noticed that they were inspecting and cleaning the site next to us very closely after departure of a camper, washing the tables, etc. The best part was... More

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights recently and absolutely fell in love with it. We camped in a tent. The tent sites all include an electrical outlet, fire pit and picnic table. No roughing it here! Clean bathrooms were a very short walk away (they have 3 different bath houses located throughout the camp). The "designer" bathrooms were... More

We had an amazing 2 night stay! We have a 33ft travel trailer and stayed on the 3rd tier overlooking the mountains! The grade going up is a bit step, but is well worth it!! I think we might compare everything from here on out to our amazing view at Mama Gertie's!! Thanks!!!

I stayed at MG's with my son - camping...for the purpose of visiting my step-son at UNC - A and enjoying Asheville and environs. The site was without reservation, one of the very best I have ever stayed at.... the pitches were private yet conveniently located for water and the restrooms, the owners were fabulous - welcoming and super helpful......

We have stayed at a lot of campgrounds but this place is off the hook. You should come here just to camp even if you weren't planning on coming to the area. Stay at top of the hill for sure. People are nice. Landscaping is unbelievable even the rocks are clean. The bathroom is better than a Ritz Carlton. The... More

This was our second summer stay at Mama Gertie's and both visits were exceptional. All the great reviews you read are indeed the "real deal". The campground is absolutely beautiful with great landscaping and spectacular views. It is very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. You don't even want to leave each day to go do other things in the area. All... More

We stayed in our RV Sunday through Thursday. Very helpful and friendly staff. They led the way to our mountain top site. All of the upper sites have the most beautiful views of the mountains. The park is very neat and clean, with very, very nice bath houses and facilities. Pet friendly and a great place to visit. Very close... More

We stayed in one of the camping cabins with our 2 kids, ages 5 and 8. The cabin was cozy and our kids loved the bunk beds. The top bunk rail was a little low so we actually moved the mattress down to the floor for night-time sleeping for our restless 8yr old! There was a beautiful creek in our... More

This park is amazing. The sites are immaculate, the shower and laundry facilities well supplied and clean, wifi works well and consistently, the water pressure is good and the staff is very helpful and friendly. We stayed in one of the mountain top views with a deck that included a wooden swing, picnic table and grill. The deck was built... More

Spent four nights during our visit to the Asheville area. This is THE nicest campground we have seen in 10 years of camping. The grounds and facilities, including restrooms and laundry rooms, are spotless. The park is extremely steep, but the mountainside sites are charming and level. Very nice home base for day tripping.
