Hungry Mother State Park is a state park in southwestern Virginia.

Much of the land for Hungry Mother State Park was donated by local landowners to develop a new state park in Smyth County on Hungry Mother Creek. The park is one of the six original CCC parks that opened in June 1936. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.

  • Gorgeous park that offers well-maintained trails, swimming and kayaking in a beautiful lake. Recently we stayed at the Royal Oak Campgrounds inside the park. It was excellent. Instead of traditional tent pads, they had wooden decks overlooking a hill which made it easy to set up tents and chairs. Easily accessible bathroom and shower facilities, and a nice caretaker that goes around to every location to ensure you have everything you need.
  • Beautiful park with walking trails and picnic tables and a lakeside beach. We took a picnic lunch and my 5 yr old played on the playground and my mom and grandma walked the trails and shopped at the visitor's center. I have wonderful memories of camping at this park as a child and swimming in the lake, paddle boating, and exploring the trails. It is serene and a wonderful place to relax.
