“Beautiful Hiking”
Review of Unicoi State Park

Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We had a very relaxing stay! The hotel staff was very nice and friendly and the room and grounds were very well maintained. They run a shuttle back and forth to Helen which is nice if one wants to imbibe or doesn't want to fight the traffic and parking concerns of the town. Our main reason for the trip was the awesome hiking the surrounding area has to offer. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet before heading out for a hike and then when we returned tired in the evening we would grab something to eat at the tavern in the lodge. They also had a fire at night in the common area at night for folks to mingle and cook marshmallows. We drove over to the campground and it really looked nice and talked to the friendly staff at the visitors center. All in all, it was nice experience and we will forward to going back.

If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track. Relaxed unusual environment? Helen is thes place. Nestled in the Georgia mountains, this quaint Georgia German town has everything for all ages. Fishing, zip lining, tubing,hiking trails German restaurants and lots more. We had such a beautiful weekend and the weather was perfect.

We had a great spring break trip. We weren’t able to reserve an exact camping spot online ahead of time so we got the last one left. The trading post and playground is a short walk from the sites. The laundry machine was out of order in the comfort station nearest us but there was a laundry building next to the trading post we could have used if necessary. The trails were great. Nearby Anna Ruby Falls was amazing. Our oldest enjoyed the zip lining. Disappointed in the tennis courts which seem to be a gardening experiment these days filled with raised beds. The Lodge and restaurant were very nice.

The State park is well kept. It's quiet, peaceful and provides for a natural reset. The beach area has kayaks and boats for rent. Ziplines are an added attraction.

We’ve been a few times now and still love it. Tried some new trails today and they don’t fail. You can tell the place got hurt by the hurricane winds of 2017 but they’ve done a good job of clearing the trails.
