I have been coming here for the past 10 years. It's one of the best Campgrounds I have been to anywhere. Not only is it beautiful and well kept like most state parks but the staff has always been tremendous and helpful. And the location is quite perfect. It is set high on the mountain so you get wonderful views easy access to the Appalachian trail And lots of hiking everywhere.
We tent camped here in the Royal Oak section. Campsites in this section are tent only and very nice and have platforms. Rv sites are crowded. Clean bath houses, and plenty to do. The lake is beautiful and has boat rentals and a swimming beach! Great place to kayak! This place stays booked up, so reservations are suggested during the summer/fall months.
This is one of the best Virginia State Parks I have camped at!
The area is just so incredibly beautiful and the park is huge, there is so much to do and explore. The ponies, hikes of all kinds, waterfalls, mountains. It is a trip I will remember forever.
We got a non-site specific tent site reservation so we rolled up and I think we got the best one, site 13. It is the most private and very comfortable. Close to the bathrooms and water. I have no complaints! It was great!
Check out Molly Chomper Cidery if you venture out of the park!
When pulling up to this campground, we were greeted within moments. The lady (owner?) checking us in was very nice and helpful. A campground host came in a golf cart and showed us to our site, and brought us firewood as well. The site was directly across from the bathrooms, which was nice.
The dogs got a long walk around the multi-level campground set in the mountains. All of the campers we encountered were very friendly.
The campground offers bbq and pizza delivery to your site-you just have to call and order. Not sure of the price, but the campers next to us ordered a pizza and it was delivered within 30 minutes. It looked good!
Bathrooms clean, campground is nice and quiet after 8pm. No complaints! I recommend this campground, and will make my way back eventually.
Our first time at Hungry mother State Park. We stayed at Camp Burson (part of Hungry Mother) which is located about 1 mile south of the main park. A number of sites are here which have full hookups. About 1/2 of the sites are reservable and 1/2 get assigned when you arrive. The main park at Hungry Mother has a large swimming area with a diving dock (swim platform) in the water and concession stand. The boathouse has kayaks and paddle boats to rent. Admission to the main park is free to anyone staying at Burson.
The town of Marion has a great drive-in movie theater - Park Place drive-in. They also have mini-golf and ice cream there. Certainly worth a stop! The town has all the usual places. Unfortunately with the Covid virus we did not frequent them.
Great State Park! Camp/RV does have full hook up spots, and larger rigs will fit, but very tight for big A’s. Road to park is very tight, windy and has low trees. Take your time and know you are on the right road, it won’t seem like it. Park is very clean, well run, with great shade. Hiking trails are excellent and lake is beautiful. We will definitely be back.
