What does your family’s ideal outdoor excursion include?
Is your pack full of adventure seekers? Get the whole group’s blood pumping with the Unicoi Zipline & Aerial Adventure Tour. Redefine what it means to get out on the water as you zip over Unicoi Lake on the Level II Zipline Tour. With 19 zip lines and over 7 suspension bridges, this experience is not only unique to Unicoi State Park, but will have the whole family asking for more Georgia Mountain Adventures.
Trips to Alpine Helen
Festivals and festivities flow like North Georgia Wine in Alpine Helen. Look into Helen, Georgia’s upcoming events to plan a trip that will delight family members of all ages. Settle into a North Georgia State Park cabin rental or campsite at Unicoi State Park, just miles from the alpine action. Cut the commute and get straight to the shopping and savoring as Unicoi State Park Lodge provides a shuttle to and from town daily. In addition to the Annual Hot Air Balloon Race and Oktoberfest, the village at Alpine Helen boasts over 400 shops, restaurants, and boutiques.
Amp up an annual celebration and make Adventure Camp your Georgia Family Reunion headquarters. Set away from other guests and activities, this hideaway has wide-open recreation fields and access to Unicoi State Park’s trophy trout streams. The five furnished mini-cabins have heat and air conditioning and sleep up to 22 people. House the whole crew without compromising comfort.
*Adventure Camp is rented to one group at a time and availability can be extremely limited.
Smith Creek Cabins
For families looking to truly unplug, we recommend our 2-bed, 2-bath Smith Creek Cabins. These rustic, mountain cabin rentals are set back in the heart of the park. WiFi and cable-free, there’s more time to connect with each other when the family isn’t worried about staying connected to the world. Each rental cabin features a full kitchen, wood-burning fireplace and central heating and air conditioning. Large living spaces and spacious outdoor areas provide plenty of opportunity for the family to spread out and take in the natural surroundings. Adventure activities available all over the park, scenic nature trails and a beautiful 53-acre mountain lake provide plenty of entertainment for family members of all ages – no batteries needed.
For smaller groups, there are deals and packages that take the sting out of coordinating group activities. Check out the Guided Fly Fishing Trips hosted by Unicoi Outfitters, which has options for all skill levels. Many feature time on the private stocked trophy waters of the Chattahoochee River. This program is catch and release, but you can definitely snap a picture to share before cutting the big one loose.
All You Can Slam Adventures
Featuring unlimited access to all Adventure Activities, the All You Can Slam Adventures Package will keep the kids engaged and unplugged. From archery to fly-fishing, go all out in the great outdoors, while spending restful nights in the coziest of guest rooms in the Unicoi Lodge.
