Campground Description

Campground Description

Pro Contributor

Unicoi State Park is a family resort park in the Appalachian foothills near Helen, Georgia, that has a lake, trails, and is near the famous Anna Ruby Falls. Accommodation options include a large lodge or cabins, but camping is the most fitting way to enjoy your nights here, sleeping among the trees near the lakeshore.

The campground has a large number and variety of sites, all located in the same general area near the lake and Anna Ruby Falls Road, which leads to the waterfall trailhead. Tent/car/sites have water and electric hookups and RV-specific sites have full hookups and can fit vehicles up to 40 feet. ADA sites are available. There are also walk-in tent sites that require only a short trip from the car. All sites have a picnic table, fire ring, and grill. The Squirrels Nest area is for more primitive, hike-in camping and has platform sites on a hillside. Amenities distributed throughout the campground include restrooms, dish sinks, trash cans, picnic shelters, amphitheater, and playground.
