Unicoi State Park and Lodge is located near Helen, GA and is great for those in the Atlanta metro area who want to head to the mountains for the weekend. The State Park offers campsites, cabins, and a lodge for visitors to stay at, making it perfect for a small weekend get away or a close vacation. There is also a plethora of activities that the park offers, including hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, archery, biking, classes, bonfires, GPS scavenger hunts, and more! Unicoi is set among the North Georgia mountains, with a nice sized lake, providing visitors with incredible views and opportunities to explore nature. Our visit consisted of a nice hike around the lake that was ideal for picturesque views of the lake and mountains. There was hardly anyone else around during our visit, allowing us to really get out in nature and take in the peace and quiet. We had brought a couple of friends and then, after a nice morning outing around the State Park, we headed to Helen for a fun afternoon of German festivities. Unicoi was quite restful and we both thoroughly enjoyed our visit to another one of Georgia’s incredible state parks.
