Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 5, 2014

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 months.

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.

Room Tip: We were in a 28ft Motorhome.

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 are amazing, they are extremely helpful and so nice to just sit down with on a none busy time and chat. The bathhouse is very clean and adjacent laundry room was as well. If your looking for a place in nature to relax, to open your windows and hear the water trickling down the stream that runs down the mountainside priceless. This is a must stay campground. We will be back again soon as we cannot wait to try out the new sites!!

Happy camping.

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 and the view is just magnificent! We definitely look forward to returning next spring!

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 nights at another Asheville campground that was more like an RV parking lot, we were graciously welcomed to this beautiful spot just east of Asheville. NO OTHER RV PARK that we have ever visited can compare! Service was impeccable and the entire park & facilities were spotless. Hosts Jan & Jerry seemed genuinely pleased to welcome everyone & explain the future site plans-- even providing a golf cart tour. Next trip, we will not waste time searching for other parks. Mama Gertie's will be our one & only stop in the Asheville area. Thank you all for the warmth & hospitality.

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. We appreciated how quickly the staff handled our complaint about a barking dog.
