Very relaxing and excellent place to find peaceful, green surroundings. Town nearby has good eateries and boutique shopping. Very difficult to find town at night, poor signage, so you need GPS. Enjoyable Oktoberfest

We reserved a "buddy site" for our stay and were glad we decided to use our tents, as the site was not that large. Two rvs on the site would have been very tight. We arrived on Sunday and everyone (including those checking in to the lodge itself) have to check in at the same location. I was glad I... More

This park has really gone down hill in the last 5 years since our last stay in our travel trailer. We stay at Georgia State Parks 3 to 4 times a year and by far this was the least maintained park we've stayed at. The sites were eroded and in need of gravel. The bath house was dirty for most...

The lodge was under construction. It looks as if it will be nice when it is finished; however, there were limited areas for our group to gather. Having the elevator out of service for almost a day was a major problem. The food was dreadful and expensive. If you stay here, eat in Helen. The other problem we had was... More

Our room obviously had not had the "facelift". The room was damp and musky with black mold in the grout of the shower. When we returned to the room after being out for the day, the cleaning had not even included wiping out the bathroom sink...there was still coffee drops from where we had poured out the coffee.The beds were...

I have stayed twice now at Unicoi park Smith Creek cabins & have enjoyed both stays. Some amenities (hotel size shampoo, etc.) were now available versus none on my last stay. The cabin was quite nice & the breakfast buffet was very good. If you have eaten here before they moved the register into the Gift shop (which also moved... More

The staff was friendly and most were helpful. The room was nice enough but the bathroom had some bugs hiding in the towels, the tub had some mildew, everything in the room was damp. The cable reception was terrible (all the channels had fuzzy triple shadows) so watching television wasn't worth the effort of turning it on. I was told... More

We love Unicoi, and have been going there for years. The park and surrounding area are great. However, the barrel cabin we stayed in was overpriced for the renovations that have been completed. The furniture was new and comfortable, but there were holes in the walls and floors. The bathroom has been improved, but not the floor, which featured a... More

Even with ongoing remodeling, my stay was enjoyable. I liked seeing the improvement and plans for the future. Tavern and breakfasts were excellent. Buffet dinner food and prices were below expectations. Loved the location, but disappointed that river and beaches were far away. Yes, I'd like to return.

Stayed in a two bedroom cabin. Very outdated-chipped tile, holes in the wall and wasps. Toilet barely flushed and the place smelled. Can't believe I paid $185 a night to stay here but had no other option because of the busy time in town and having a wedding. When checking out they didn't ask how our stay was an ran... More
