We stayed in Cabin B-7, a two bedroom barrel cabin. It was very nice. The furniture all looked recently updated. It had a fully equipped, full sized kitchen with dining area, carpeted living room with TV, bath downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. The bedrooms had nice, comfortable beds and night stand and chest. The furniture and linens looked recently updated.... More

I have stayed in the lodge and in a hammock hanging from a tree. It is a very good outdoor place to stay. My only issue with the lodge was there was no elevator in the building we stayed in, but the people were great, the lodgings were great with the one exception, everything was clean and everything needed was...

Camped here for 2 nights. the park is very clean and shady. Check in was a breeze and we were set up fast. We had electric and water and it does have a dump station. Close to Helen and Anna Ruby Falls which was beautiful

We spent an overnight on 8/22/15 because we had attended a wine/food paring dinner nearby and did not want to drive back to Morgan County late at night. My wife loves to walk and she thoroughly enjoyed the user-friendly path around the lake...before our leaving for dinner. Although the Lodge is 'new' to us...we had stayed at the old lodge... More

We rented a paddle boat for fifteen dollars for an hour to ride around Smith Lake. So worthwhile. It's actually an AquaCycle, and it makes good time. On a nice weather day it's so scenic and relaxing (and you can circle a few times in an hour).

A must see! easy hike up to the falls for the whole family. we visit the falls every other trip up to Helen. the whole park is really nice! we may consider staying in the cabins or bringing our camper in the future.

This is our second stay at Unicoi State Park. We are staying in our travel trailer this time versus a tent. Clean and well organized camp sites. Few full hook up sites, but their water and power sites are just fine if you have holding tanks. Close to all the local attractions and the scenery is beautiful. Strongly recommend staying... More

This is a nice state park and campground with a lodge and daily buffet. There are all kinds of sites including full service. There are also cabins for non-RVers. I've read mixed reviews on the buffet but I like it. The fresh local trout is good and a regular offering but just check to make sure the buffet is open.... More

The sites were nice and pretty closely accessible to the car. The bath house was nice and big, and there was a counter/shelving area outside the bath house as well. We only stayed one night but it was pretty peaceful and clean. We will surely do it again!
