I met my mother here for a couple of days of girls catching up and shopping in nearby Helen. We enjoyed our stay in the lodge and found our room to be clean and comfortable. The restaurant had a nice breakfast and lunch offering on the buffet and there was a big library group in that day that seemed to... More

Traveled to Unicoi for 8 nights January 2016. Camped in 39' 5th wheel on Big Brook Spur FHU. The 14-15 sites on this loop back up to a small mountain stream. Bathrooms (clean, relatively up to date) with washer/dryer are close by. Sites are gravel and level. They are angled for ease of backing in. The park is beautiful. Anna... More

While the place looks beautiful we were disappointed in our campground RV sites. We booked a buddy site and to our surprise they are small. Two Class A rv's with slides do not fit. Also be aware that buddy sites do not have sewer hook-up. When the reservations were made, nobody warned us. The bath house is a little bit... More

we stayed in the Barrel cabins for a weekend of hiking and biking. This is a great location close to Helen and many hiking trails, especially if you enjoy waterfalls. The cabin was great and had all that we needed, view of the lake was great. We came the week before Christmas, so there weren't many activities and some things... More

For my fiancée's birthday I got her a trip to Unicoi and we stayed in one of the two-bedroom barrel cabins. I could not have been more pleased. The cabin was comfortable, well-lit, and made good use of natural materials. It offered pleasant views in two directions overlooking the lake. The cabin felt intimate and fun without seeming cramped or... More

We found the staff at the lodge courteous and helpful. The barrel cabin was unique, had everything we needed, was clean and newly remodeled, had great outdoor surroundings, close to Helen and other points of interest. We enjoyed it enough to add a night to our stay. The stars were great! We enjoyed the interior of the cabin very much... More

Unicoi State Park (Smith Creek Cabins) has been a favorite place for us to stay for the last six years. It is absolutely the most beautiful place in Georgia. They are updating the cabins with new bed linens, curtains, front porches and the like, however, the cabins are dirty. Housekeeping is absolutely unacceptable. Also the supplies in a cabin that...

Spent this past weekend at the Lodge at Unicoi State Park in Helen, Ga. What a great place nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Upon check in, we met Tim, front desk attendant, who was great. I work at a hotel and I wish all our front desk employees were as good as Tim. Keys wound not... More

Great time hiking the Lake Trail even though a took a while to figure out where to park to start the trail. Ran into several friendly people at the visitor center (where we parked). $5 parking. Clean park and well managed.
