They have quiet time at 11pm but no end time. People were laughing and yelling all the way up to 11pm. The sites are really close together. People were packing up and playing music at 6am an hour before daylight. In the RV area there were 2 bathrooms for 50 sites so it was a walk to get there at night. You can’t check out before 9am so we waited around until Wanda got there. Very clean. Not complaining just informing.
Unicoi is a beautiful State Park and a great place to camp for a couple nights.
Only about 10 minutes away from the German-Style historic town of Helen, which also has the Chattahoochee River. Helen has two companies who rent out tubes that go through the city on the river. That is something everyone has to try if they go through this part of Georgia!
The Chattahoochee River also has some pretty good (freshwater) fishing, you just have to watch out for the tubers.
Enough about Helen, Unicoi is a truly awesome place to stay. It has everything you can imagine, with a little hiking, a river to dip your toes in, a lodge to stop and get some food or buy souvenirs, canoe/kayak rentals, zip lining and more.
This used to be my family’s summer vacation place to stay, and I would recommend you make it a tradition as well!
We stayed at the Big Brook Loop which offers full hookups. These sites do not offer anything in the way of privacy but do offer lots of shade and gravel sites. Access to hiking trails is easy as is the cute, quaint town of Helen. We were staying July 4th week so it was, of course, busier, as it normally would be during the summer peak months. Comfort station is mediocre. There is supposed to be laundry at this loop but there are no washer or dryer in the laundry room. (I didn’t check the other areas that are stated as such on the campground map)
Set in a lush green Forrest, Unicoi State Park just outside of Helen, GA, has something for everyone.
Destination Wedding facilities
Squirrels Nest camp site (soooo cool)
Beautiful lake, with fishing piers and also a swimming beach.
Entertainment, free concerts
The people are so friendly and the and the amenities are many. The RV park and facilities are well kept and clean. You will love the hilly terrain of the park. The tree-covered sites have picnic tables and fire rings . We have been multiple times and looking forward to going back. Many photograph worthy sites.
Nice but busy, so noisy. Clean bathrooms.
The RV campground in Uniquoi is a well kept campground in the beautiful Uniquoi state park. Be aware there is a steep grade to get up to this campground.
Each site is level gravel, and some even offer wooden decks. Firewood and laundry available. The campground shares property with the visitors center so you may see more traffic in peak season months.
Prices here vary depending on day of week, time of year, and what site you choose. You’re close to a lot of hikes around the park, including Anna Ruby falls (which is a national park tucked within state park, so $3 to get in).
Uniquoi is right outside of the bustling town of Helen which fills up in the spring and summer with vacationers and tubers.
There are also cabins for rent within this park (see picture).
My wife and I hiked part of the Appalachian Trail in March 2018. The last 3 days of our 14 day trip we camped here just to get couple nights at a regular camp site. I really like this place. Next time we might stay at the squirrels nest.
Unicoi State Park is a large Park in north Georgia. The Park has a Lake, rope courses, a restaurant, lounge and beautiful Lodge. It's 2 miles from Helen Georgia, an Alpine gem nestled in the mountains.
Hiking trails of all levels abound including many with falls destinations.
We stayed in the squirrel's nest area during Oktoberfest in Helen, and it was a great experience. Remember that you won't have a ton of privacy there, but you can have a pretty big group.
Whether you are in your tent or your RV or in a cabin , Unicoi will take your breath away. Perched on the side of the beautiful Georgia mountains, I feel as if you're 1,000,000 miles away from the madness. But indeed, you're just an hour and a half north of the major metropolitan area of Atlanta. Trails, waterfalls, wildlife, & unlimited amazement !
Unicoi, great for the trails, great for your family, and great for a piece that goes beyond what you can imagine
