We stayed in lodge for 4 nights over the Labor Day weekend attending a wedding in the area. We had stayed there many years ago so knew somewhat to expect. After reading all the reviews with problems in TA we almost cancelled. Glad we did not. Yes there is a major renovation which causes some slight inconvenience, but in general... More

I went on a retreat this weekend and stayed in a barrel cabin, B6. The bathroom was downstairs, quite nice, and had plenty of hot water for 6 females showering off and on. I loved the scent of the soap. The kitchen was adequately equipped equipment wise for a short stay. There was no blow dryer that I saw. The... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how nice my room was for a national park lodge. It was modest but functional and clean. The meals in their restaurant were simple but hearty and tasty. The views, surrounding hiking routes and proximity to Helen make it an ideal choice.

Unicoi Lodge was scheduled to completely renovation of the lodges and the conference center beginning January 2013 taking a year to complete. Unicoi has been a great place for family activities and we have gone up there several times a year. We assumed that by the end of August 2014 renovations would be complete. We made reservations for a king... More

Stayed in a barrel cabin. There were 60 steps on the path to cabin. Layout inside very strange. Bedrooms upstairs ,1 bathroom downstairs. One mirror in whole cabin in the bathroom. Bathroom flooring falling apart. No dressers in bedroom, bedside tables with one drawer each. I have stayed in state parks before and cabins were functional and in decent shape.... More

This is a great campground, with lots of things to see and do. The grounds are clean as are the bathhouses. It is located near Helen, Ga., which has it's own appeal, and near some great hiking and mountain bike riding. We trailered our Dual Sport motorcycles and launched into some great riding from the campsite.

We stayed one night in a room at the Unicoi Lodge which had two full size beds with a twin mattress in the loft. It was located in the State park that offers several amenities like camping, hiking, etc. I though the room was clean and comfortable, and the only negative that I had was the twin bed in the...

We have stayed at Unicoi many times in the last 30 years, but the state of Georgia has not done any maintenance in a very long time. Our cabin (one of the barrel style) was filthy, the linoleum in the kitchen was cracked and had big chunks missing. Turns out that the state of Georgia sold the management rights to... More

After hiking the Smith Creek 10-mile trail, my girlfriend and I were thrilled at the hospitality of the folks at Unicoi Lodge. The gentleman (truly a southern gent) at the front desk checked me in without judging my sweaty shirt or filthy hiking boots and even upgraded us to a king-sized bed (from two doubles - all that was available...
