Out of all the campgrounds we utilized during our three week vacation this summer, Mama Gertie's Hideaway was by far the best. The campground is cut and terraced out of the side of a mountain. The drive to and from your campsite, if on one of the higher levels, can be intimidating on first blush, but really quite easy to navigate.
The young lady at the office was very friendly and helpful upon check in and told us that a coworker would guide us to our site. Sure enough, a young man was waiting for us in a golf cart. I had never been escorted to a campsite before and didn't understand why until we began the journey to our site located on the second to highest terrace of the campground.
Immediately upon leaving the office area, we began a climb that I estimated to be something like 20 degrees or more. It felt like we were driving nearly straight up. We reached the first level and straightened out for a short period, and then began a second climb to our level. The young man not only pointed out our site, but got out of his cart and directed me while backing into the site so we were perfectly straight and centered. I must say the customer service at this campground is exemplary.
The site is gravel but is bordered with landscaping bricks, which the young man immediately began trimming with a string trimmer to ensure a clean look. The site was nearly perfectly level and came with a picnic table and medium tall evergreens on each side to provide privacy from your neighbors. The back of the site had large boulders to avoid you accidentally backing off or falling off your site to the level below. The view was outstanding and all the campsites on lower levels were visible.
Mama Gertie's offers weekly and monthly rates that are quite reasonable. My wife and I are seriously considering staying there on a monthly rate in the future.
I am afraid I cannot comment on the facilities since we never used them. But the office building appears quite new and after speaking to other campers, I was given the impression that the facilities are well kept and very clean.
I highly recommend Mama Gertie's and we will return.
