Camp Burson is a sprawling woodland campground in Hungry Mother State Park. Surrounded by tall trees, you’ll find your crash pad near a beautiful lake teeming with hungry fish. Anglers are the most popular folks at any campground, so if you’re one of ‘em, don’t forget your welcome sign. Be ready to tell your big fish tale ‘round a roaring campfire. If you’ve been itching to know why they call it Hungry Mother State Park, it’s not due to a lack of fish. Find out the truth when you visit this woodland paradise.

We enjoyed our stay at camp Burson. Campsites are kind of close together, but don't let it stop you. Real nice area to explore.
