Light Up the Holidays at Unicoi State Park & Lodge

As the weather begins to shift and the leaves begin to change, it’s time to start thinking about the holidays. Now, we’re not saying you need to swap out your pumpkin spice latte for eggnog just yet, but we are suggesting that you should start planning your holiday stay at Unicoi State Park & Lodge before time (and space) runs out.

Give Thanks for Great Food

Let’s start with Thanksgiving, one of the most popular days of the year at Unicoi Lodge. While some people enjoy toiling over a hot stove all day, Unicoi says leave it to the professionals. Our celebrated Thanksgiving Day Buffet at the Unicoi Restaurant sees more than 1,000 guests throughout the day. Complete with freshly carved turkey, succulent herb crusted sirloin, homemade gravy and all the fixings, our Thanksgiving Day Buffet is the new tradition you want and your family needs. Guests are seated hourly from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Call us today at (706) 878-2201 ext. 267 to secure your family’s reservation before it’s too late.

Holiday Parties a Hit

While our holiday feasts attract a lot of guests to Unicoi Lodge, holiday parties also make our North Georgia state park a popular destination this time of year. Businesses, corporations and organizations from across Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina choose to celebrate their success and experience camaraderie on our grounds.

For those traveling from outside of the area, the variety of on-site accommodations makes their stay even more enjoyable. Guests can choose from King or Queen lodge rooms or may even opt for our Helen, Ga cabin rentals if they’re close with members of their group. Our wide variety of facilities, diverse meal options, and flexible accommodations make Unicoi State Park & Lodge the perfect place for a corporate or organization holiday party, no matter the size of the group.

Festival of Trees: A Unicoi Tradition


If you’re looking for philanthropic Helen, GA events, the Unicoi’s Festival of Trees might be just what you need to spark some holiday cheer. As most seasonal guests know, the holiday season doesn’t truly kick-off until Unicoi’s annual Festival of Trees auction begins. Each year, more than 20 themed trees and wreaths are decorated by local community businesses and organizations and auctioned off to support United Way of White County. The display graces the second floor of the lodge from mid-November through early December. Visitors from all over the country bid on the passionately decorated trees and wreaths. At the end of the display period, the festive souvenirs are awarded to the highest bidder. We encourage all guests to view and participate in this event that supports a wonderful local organization.

Unicoi State Park & Lodge isn’t just another Helen, GA hotel or a site with Georgia State Park cabins. It is a place where families can cherish meals and make memories; where groups can gather, celebrate and connect; where community comes together to make the holiday season a little brighter for those in need. We hope to see you this holiday season.
