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.

I was here in October, 2014 on a waterfall viewing trip...28 falls in 11 days. This is one of the best in the area, easy to get to, double falls, river views and very impressive. The hike is about 1 mile round trip and paved with few inclines, some boardwalk and some steps. This double waterfall is viewed off a... More

We couldn't have asked for better weather. Hiking trails were great. The lake was beautiful. I got so many fabulous pictures! Enjoyed it so much and can hardly wait to return!

The Unicoi state park is very pretty in October, there is some nice hiking nearby. I would not recommend the barrel cabins, we were originally put in on of those (B6), it was depressing, dark, damp, cold and the heating system didn't work. Bulbs in light figures were too low a wattage, many rooms were very dark, too dark to... More

The lodge at Unicoi State Park is a nice place to stay, no special amenities. Hiking trails were fabulous! We didn't like the looks of the buffet in the restaurant, so headed to Helen to eat instead. Friendly & informative staff.

We enjoyed the Smith Creek Day use area spent the day there where my husband ran a marathon. Smith Creek runs through the area very pretty setting with many trails for a stroll or hiking
