The walking trails were nice and the Half Marathon was perfectly organized. The camp sites are very small and close to each other.

The renovations to the lodege itself were nice. However, the buffet food was sub par. The room was only partially refurbished.

We did not really find this to be worth the money, though we enjoyed seeing the falls. Perhaps if we had tried other trails we would have enjoyed it more. We didn't have a lot of time to spend here.

We didn't stay this time, but enjoyed seeing the Festival of Trees at the lodge. In October, my brother and I walked the trail around the lake and it was quite enjoyable. Will return again.

This is a very pretty park. The main attraction is actually in the national forest behind the park however, Anna Ruby Falls. It will cost $3 per person to hike 1/2 mile to the falls. It is uphill, but several places to rest. All in all a good park visit.

Unicoi State Park is beautiful and has everything an outdoor's man would love. We take the kids there often to hike and in the summer we spend many days at the beach. There are paddle boat rentals, cool cabins, a beautiful lodge that hosts many events throughout the year. I would highly recommend this state park when traveling this area.

All GA state park cottages are nice, but these also have a great location near Helen and Unicoi has lots to offer. Lots of hiking options, a very good mtn bike trail, and a direct route into Helen for some good old Bavarian fun can't be beat. They've done some recent updates on the cottages too. I would have given... More

My family stayed at Cabin #4 at Smith Creek Cabins. They have been recently renovated which is nice, they did some tile, new lighting in the kitchen and some nice new living room furniture, including new lamps. The cabins are a bit rustic, but you are away from the hustle of nearby Helen, GA. There is a River across the... More

This review is for the state park, not the cabins. The park is clean and beautiful. So many hiking trails and places to take beautiful pictures with.. A must visit place when in Helen.
