We really enjoyed the time we spent at the Unicoi State Park! They were decorating for Christmas and everything looked so joyful. The people were very nice and helpful and the food was excellent! If you are in the area, this must be a destination, you will enjoy!

We went to the lodge at Unicoi State Park for Thanksgiving dinner and were not disappointed. The park itself is beautiful, and the lodge was decorated for the Holidays. The buffet offered many selections of right good food, but thanks to the patrons more care should be given to the dessert area!

We stayed at the lodge, which I reviewed separately. Today we walked the Lakte Trail, which circles Unicoi Lake (2.5 miles). It's long but not difficult. Do it before breakfast so you can see the sunrise over the mountains - gorgeous.

Unicoi State Park is one of those places that many may overlook because of all of the other things going on in the area. However, there is a plethora of areas to have a picnic or just relax with the family or your significant other. There is also a beautiful lake that offers some excellent photo opportunities.

Located in the middle of downtown. Beautifully kept park complete with playground and at this time of year lots of leaves for our non fall having Florida based teenagers to frolic around in.

We spent Friday night through Monday there. Beautiful scenery, and very relaxing place. Our room at the Lodge was clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very good. We took a short walk on one of the trails which was enjoyable. My husband did the Zip lining which he enjoyed. I enjoyed watching and taking photos, lol. I had done... More

Nice hike to Helen and back (6 miles out and back). We absolutely love the campground. The walk-in spots are our favorites.

Got off to a slow start when we stood around the reception desk at the lodge waiting for the staff to help us. One man was on the phone with a prospective guest and another man in a back office preoccupied with work. Finally got checked in (we had a reservation on file). Lodging staff didn't make a good first... More

This is a beautiful state park especially in autumn. Offers zip lining, walking trails, beach, mountain views, waterfalls, etc. I would definitely come here again. The lodge is really great for conferences and the restrooms are very clean.
