Love it!

I really enjoyed the trail. Very hilly and mountainous in comparison to the trail near my own home. I was a little upset that I didn't see any falls but, i'm sure they're there.

We learned when checking in that no food was served Sunday night or on Monday☹️. The bathroom was small and somewhat dated. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. It was quiet. Two electrical outlets did not function correctly.

We stayed at the lodge which was really fun. And there are many types of trails for all levels to enjoy here. Make sure you get a pass for a bike trail if you plan to bike. And they have other trails for peds only so you don't have to worry about getting out of biker's ways all the time.... More

We are a family of 4 with an 8 and 3 yr old. We stayed in a loft room that had ample space for for us. My 8yr old slept upstairs and he had a place to retire to when he had enough of his baby brother, we even made a fort. The beds were comfortable and the place was... More

We LOVE Unicoi and continue to come back at once or twice a year. Nice camping, lodge, cabins, etc. There's something for everyone.

We enjoy coming here during the cooler months for hiking and biking. During the summer we enjoy playing in the water and the waterfalls. Just outside Helen, GA this park offers everything you need for a full day. We like going to the lodge for the craft fair and other events.

We visited this park after hiking to the Anna Ruby Falls. It's a beautiful park, although we got quite turned around in it. The little visitor's center is adorable but very high priced. Moreso than other State Parks we've visited. Their play ground for kids is decent and well kept. After about 30 minutes the boys were ready to go,... More

During the Christmas holidays, we traveled to Helen, GA and rented a two BR, two BA cabin near Smith Creek in the park. Our cabin was great and we would definitely consider staying there again, if back in that area. Some of our family was able to get a spot in the Unicoi campground, and were not far from us.... More

This is a beautiful park! There are many hiking options and the trails are well maintained. I did not do the zip line but the people in the cabin next to me did it and they said it was a lot of fun.

We enjoyed the lake views and mountain views! It is definitely worth the extra money to see Anna Ruby Falls! It was very busy so go early!
