Camped here over the weekend, beautiful place. Ate at the Lodge dining room a couple times, very good food, a little pricey but not bad. Campground was kept very clean, wooded and shady, paved roads. Nice beach area on the lake, nice playground for kids. We were with a very large group. Cabins and lodge rooms were also available.

Beautiful park. Didn't get to see much but saw many boaters and hikers enjoying its amenities. Ana Ruby Falls is a must. Small store available with modest offerings. Nice outing.

Had a wonderful afternoon hike, 3.29 miles using fitbit gps app on Bottoms Loop Trail 2 mile loop trail, that was cool, mainly shaded, up and down though mostly level hike, termed easy hike, except for a small part that runs through a meadow and in early afternoon was in full sun. Folks in the Unicoi Lodge office helped me... More

This is one of the prettiest places in Georgia. We try to go at least once a year and always enjoy the park and area. It's not unusual to see bears while driving through.

We took a spur of the moment trip to Unicoi and were pleasantly surprised. Nearby Vogel State Park was completely booked so my husband rented a barrel cabin at Unicoi instead. While they do need some remodeling and updating (flooring, carpet, etc), they are very clean and comfortable. We were really just there to sleep anyway, right? Great trails to... More

If you have never been what ate you waiting for? It is a great way to beat the heat in the summer and fun for the whole family. It is good for a day trip, a weekend or even longer. You can visit Anna Ruby Falls, trout fish in the river, swim at the lake, take a canoe out. They... More

The lake view is amazing and it was cool to walk up to the dam on both sides. We did a late hike to Anna Ruby falls and then drove through the park stopping at different spots. Definitely some pretty scenery and a cooler more tolerable temperature in the evening. Don't pass up stopping to enjoy the view!

This is a well maintained and beautiful park near Helen, Georgia. The drive is peaceful and winding around tall trees and rushing waters. There are several places for picnics with tables. There are parking areas for scenic views. There are hiking trails and contained within the park is Anna Ruby Falls for a $3.00 fee per person. Very nice area!

Arrived late afternoon on Sunday June 7,2015. Check in at Lodge as campground office was closed. Found site. Had not been cleared from prior campers. Used plastic bags to pick up trash. Restroom quite distant down an eroding dirt path and several flights of earthen stairs. Facility dirty only 2 useable toilets and 2grubby showers. Very disappointing. Ice and firewood... More
