The State Park Service drains Hungry Mother Lake every few years in the fall of the year. It has a purpose, ecologically, but I don't know the reason. It is refilled fairly quickly by Hungry Mother Creek, which is the water source for the Lake.

They close the facilities after Labor Day weekend for the winter. It is the norm...

I will say that it seems like they are doing it a few weeks early this year though...
