Very well maintained park located in the North Georgia mountains. A treat for the eyes and a great place to hike. There is a well stocked camp store and a boat rental concession on the small lake. Highly recommended.

Unicoi has it all. Camping for those who like sleeping outdoors and a nice lodge and cottages for those who enjoy more creature comforts. Lots of trails. Warning: If you want to enjoy this during the fall "leaves" season plan for crowds.

Yes they have three different types of cabins, one, two and three bedroom types. They have very unique shaped barrel cabins on the east side of the lake. All areas have grills.
