Looking for recommendations to Mama Gertie's off route I-40.
We will be coming west/south on I-80.
Would it be better to hit I-77 near Wytheville and continue south on I-77 to I-40 at Statesville and then follow west towards Asheville...
Continue to follow I-81 to I-26 near Kingsport and follow I-26 south to Asheville and back slightly east on I-40?
It's been years since we've been in that particular area.
Thanks in advance.
Not sure about the best route for you, but others will be. Just wanted to say that you will love Mama Gertie's, especially if you get one of the "view" sites at the top. And it's the most well-kept campground we've ever been to. If I owned a campground, this is the way I would run it.
Also, great restaurants and shops nearby in Asheville and Black Mountain.
