Black Bear Rug Camp at Unicoi
Our Fall 2018 Workshop will be held at Unicoi State Park in North Georgia. Unicoi is located about 2 hours northeast of Atlanta, GA. Please visit our Workshop page for more details about our rug hooking camp.
Unicoi State Park Lodge is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Helen, GA. Amenities include waterfalls, hiking, golf, lake, boating and shopping which are ideal for a rug camp. The lodge is newly renovated and all inclusive with double occupancy in Building A. There are king size or handicapped rooms in another building close by.
A short walk to the lobby under covered porticoes puts you in a lovely sitting area with fireplace and comfortable furniture just outside our classroom. Building A also has a sitting area with fireplace for evening camaraderie. Parking with handicapped accessibility is located very close to the lobby, bedrooms and classroom area.
The lodge has 2 restaurants and a sandwich shop. Camp supplies 2 meals, a hot breakfast and a lunch buffet. You never need to leave the facility unless you wish to go to Helen for a little shopping or sightseeing.
Helen is just 3 miles down the road and is a covenanted town in the style of a Bavarian Village, complete with beer halls and um pa pa. October is also Oktoberfest, a fun time in the area with various events happening. There are many restaurants and Betty’s Country Store, which has all the necessities for a light meal or deli sandwiches and salads for your evening fare. Hoffman’s Bakery has outstanding baked items and if you get there before 6 p.m. you can get a German style meal which is quite nice and enjoy music on the deck.
Come join us in beautiful North Georgia!
