Between Memorial Day and Labor Day swimming under the supervision of lifeguards is a popular activity at Hungry Mother State Park. The snack shack is also open during this period.
Large and smallmouth bass, rock bass and sunfish are just a few of the species found at Hungry Mother Lake. Many fish are restocked annually to keep supplies abundant. The fishing pier features universal access.
There are many types of boats you can hire to enjoy on the lake. These include paddleboats, kayaks, canoes and jon boats. You will see a different side of the park and have a lot of family fun steering your own boat around the lake.
Small game hunting and deer hunting are possible in approximately 800 acres of the park, offering a lot of opportunity for keen hunters. As with fishing, once you have a Virginia licence you are all set and you can then get info from the park office about the best places to go.
