“Beautiful park”

Wife and I spent 5 days here during mid-October 2017. The leaves were beautiful and the trails fantastic. We had a wonderful time strolling by the nearly deserted lake (love off season).  We have a 33 foot 5th wheel and long bed 1-ton truck so we are right at 50 feet long. Our reservation was in Camp Burson, where we arrived after dark. We had a very difficult time figuring out where to park on the first night, and an equally difficult time navigating the tight turns abutted by many trees. I don't think the park should accept reservations for over 30 feet, it is just too tight. We walked through Creekside campground and it was equally tight. Some locals who had been going there for years had no problems, but we had a dreadful time navigating our rig here.

“Love it!”

Family has camped in Burson campground for years - we absolutely love it.  Large, well maintained sites.  Husband and sons love the individual, clean, secure shower/bathrooms (as the shower in our camper is on the small side).  Laundry facilities at bathhouse.  Groceries five minutes away.  Love the lake and all the trails.  


We wanted to stay here for a couple of nights and thought it would be a good  place sonce it was part of the park system. BUT $44-48 per night was too steep for us, which was the non-resident charge. Very disappointing. 
Stayed: 11/03/16 to 11/06/16

Open all year, well-spaced campsites for RVs, clean, heated bathrooms and showers, great for fall color and hikes.

“Beautiful autumn rving area”

You may have to check in at the ranger station down the road...if the one on site is not open. Park in your assigned site and setup...then go check in. The sites are well spaced, full hookups, spotless bathrooms, firepits and tables. Rangers are about often and there is a resident camp host. This is not a huge area but we thoroughly enjoyed it. Be aware if you are out early or is a natural park with resident wildlife. While we were there, we saw deer, heard a pack of coyotes at night and were told a bear had been sighted there two days before...but was frightened off with shining a flashlight. We loved it here. We are seniors camping in a fifth wheel.

“Beautiful & open year-round”

Hungry Mother has a lovely lake, nice trails of all levels, good fishing, and a nice summer swimming beach. One of it's two RV campgrounds is open for winter camping with full hookups.

“Great Campground”

Was a really nice campground peaceful quiet. Spaces were good size,  hookups we're well maintained were I was at only reason didn't give five stars was shower drains needed cleaning more and trees limbs needed trimed in some areas.  But would recommend!!!
