Mama Gertie’s Hideaway Campground – September 2014

Location: Asheville, North Carolina

Webpage: RV Park

General Description: Located east of Asheville just off of Interstate 40, Mama Gertie’s Hideaway Campground is a medium size RV Park with full hookups and sites large enough for the biggest rigs.  It is built into the hillside far enough from the Interstate that you cannot hear the traffic, yet only a mile from gas stations and an Ingalls supermarket.  The lower sites are laid out in 3 rows and are all pull-through with ample room between the sites.  Newer sites have been built up the hillside with a set of back-in sites overlooking the lower sites and brand new pull-through sites further up the hill with decks and spectacular views of the valley and surrounding hills.  Mama Gertie’s also has one-room cabins right with porches right on the side of a bubbling stream.  The campground has controlled access using a keypad entry system.

Impressions:

1) This is a beautiful campground with ample room between the sites.  We stayed in a back-in site up on the hillside which provided us a very nice view out of the back of the RV looking over the lower sites.  There was plenty of shade and although the room between the sites was not as much as I would like, it was adequate with planted trees and bushes between them.  We did take a look at the newest sites, which were not yet completed, and the view  of the valley and mountains was spectacular.

2) The bathroom and showers were brand new and kept spotlessly clean.  They were located between the upper sites and the cabins, which was a bit of a walk but not bad.

3) We did not look inside the cabins, but their location next to the stream was beautiful.  I would certainly love to stay in a cabin with a mountain stream I could watch from my porch.  It would certainly makes for a great alternative to a motel and at $50 a night a cost savings.  You would have to bring your own bed linens and towels though.

4) We would certainly stay at Mama Gertie’s whenever we visit Asheville in the future.
