I am a trail runner. Having the opportunity to run the trails two days in a row was awesome! Much of the Helen trail runs along the creek there and was wonderful.

We were too tired to drive to town so we went to the Sunday night buffet. It was overpriced and overcooked but the ice cream was good.

Make sure to make several stops while driving up the mountain. Many beautiful views to take in, and visiting during the autumn months provides wonderful colorful scenes.

Unicoi is really a pleasure to visit. So pretty and the lake is serene but I bet it is hopping in the Summer. We are looking forward to renting cabins there next year too

Even with the leaves off the trees this park has a lot to offer. The lodge has a nice restaurant and supply/gift shop. Staff was wonderful. I have stayed in the cabins in the past and thoroughly enjoyed the visits. Truly a gem in a beautiful setting. Lots to do, too.

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.
