go to campgroundreviews.com and tap on North Carolina on the map...scroll down to Swannanoa...then scroll down to Mama Gerties for reviews, etc.

This review site is very good.

K,

Just looked, trying to see if there is any fishing.

Hittntherooad,

Look up "Moonshiner 28" if you want to see some pretty waterfalls, roads and camping along a strip of HWY28 in the NC mountains that has quite the history (also "Tail of the Dragon"). We are planning a trip later this Spring to HWY28.

Doc

Reviews look good; sounds like you want to stay in the upper part of the campground for some really scenic views.

I'd love to stay in a site that looks like this:

I read about it on another forum I go to.... a fellow goes there every year I believe. Seems like a good guy and I would trust his judgement....

I'm heading up that way in a couple months, but not to that CG. Staying at a place in Chimney Rock, a Jellystone park in Marion, and a NP CG near Blowing Rock. Looking forward to the trip!
