Long a family favorite and known for its beautiful woodlands and placid 108-acre lake in the heart of the mountains, Hungry Mother has a sandy beach with bathhouse, boats and boat launch, universally accessible fishing pier, campgrounds, cabins, a fantastic restaurant, a gift shop, a visitor center, a five-bedroom lodge that sleeps 16, and hiking and biking trails. It's also home to the Hemlock Haven Conference Center, which is perfect for retreats, conferences and special events. Special events include the Mountain Do Triathlon in April and Hungry Mother Arts and Crafts Festival in July. It’s four miles north of Marion on State Route 16.
