We ended up at Unicoi for a night after the week of a pretty good snow for North GA. (Most other state parks were closed.) We chose the loft room, because we had 2 young boys 9 & 5) and thought they would enjoy the stay. The boys absolutely LOVED the loft...you have to go up a 10ft. metal (bolted to wall) ladder to get there! I had to "walk down" the ladder with our 5yr. old, concerned he might slip. There are only 2 mattresses on the floor and a flourescent light in the loft; so, don't expect a whole lot. The rooms are adequate and comfortable, pretty average for state park lodging...it seems state parks don't go "all out" in the cleaning department (and definitely no pampering here). However, we did have a pretty view of the woods with snow, cable, WiFi, and absolute privacy - because there wasn't hardly anyone there! We had breakfast in the lodge the next morning...not so great, but that's all there is, unless you want to check out early and drive back into Helen. It's a breakfast buffet, and we've eaten lunch there before; it's edible, but all 3 times, it just tasted like it's been reheated or sitting in the food heaters a little too long. They've got a neat little gift shop with local pottery and crafts. If you're in the area and need a place to sleep for the night, and know what to expect from most state parks, this is your spot.
