‘Hunger Games’ fans flocking to N.C. film locations

In 2011 a large Hollywood film descended upon North Carolina. It was a secret and it went by the name of “Artemis.” The film was actually “The Hunger Games.” 

As soon as word got out, fans and media starting flocking to the filming locations. One of those locations was DuPont State Recreational Forest near Brevard, which served as the arena in the film.

Since then, the Hunger Games Unofficial Fan Tours have been catering to the film’s fan base. Guided trips have been selling out for the past two years. 

The company offers three types of tours. Day tours are offered for DuPont State Recreational Forest and the Henry River Mill Village, which served as District 12 in the first film of the series. For fans with several days to spend in the area, the company offers a weekend package at Earthshine Discovery Center.
