Unicoi State Park & Lodge is a unique educational resource located on 1,051 acres in North Georgia, 2 miles north of Alpine Helen, GA. Our programs are suited for school field trips, conference functions, Scout Troops, church, civic and family reunions and adult groups. The programs available includes the site’s natural and recreational resources. Choose a combination of our available activities to best meet the group’s needs.
