We stayed a week at Amicalola Falls State Park's lodge this past early summer. This park is about 1 hour north of Atlanta and can be accessed several different ways from all points of the compass. We had previously dined here at the Lodge for the previous 2 Father's Days. There are about 56 rooms with the majority of the rooms being standard double rooms with a limited amount of king rooms. We upgraded on the spot to a junior suite that was well worth the money. In addition to a king bed in a more private area of the suite there was a huge sitting area containing a couch and a table with 4 chairs, a microwave and a small refrigerator. The private deck/porch looked out over the mountains and it was breathtaking! Not all rooms have deck/porches so this was an added treat. Depending on the time of the year, the dining room offers meals either from a menu or a buffet. We were there just before Father's Day early in the week and the first couple of nights the menu selections were the only offerings. As the week progressed the chef opened the buffet for all 3 meal times - breakfast, lunch and dinner. The buffet offerings are bountiful - all you can eat at one price - and they honor a senior adult discount! There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms so if you need to access WI-FI the best area is in the lobby area of the lodge or in the dining room. There are numerous trails and there is an access trail that will take you to the Appalachian Trail. The falls are great for photo opportunities and the Park Vistor Center down the mountain is one of the best that I have ever seen at a state park. One would never believe that the Lodge is a state park facility - it is extremely modern and is soon going to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation. There are also a numer of cabins that can be rented - some close to the lodge and others down in close proximity to the Visitor's Center. Car entry to the State Park is $5.00. This park is about 18 miles west of Dahlonega GA.
