Outdoor Adventure Day Cancelled at Unicoi

Each September, Unicoi State Park typically hosts an Outdoor Adventure Day as part of National Hunting and Fishing Day, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. Sadly, the event is canceled this year due to the tropical storm damage experienced at Unicoi and other Northeast Georgia locations.

Back in late May, Tropical Storm Alberto dumped 14 inches of rain on White County, causing significant issues to infrastructure across the county. Many facilities, including Smithgall Woods, Hardman Farm Trail, and Unicoi, experienced damaging effects.

Tropical storm damage at Unicoi included the loss of several pedestrian bridges and the access road leading to the traditional site of the Unicoi Outdoor Adventure Day. While these areas are scheduled for repair, it will not be in time for the September event. Event planners are grateful for their supportive volunteer workforce, and the interest of the public, and look forward to coming back bigger and better in September 2019. 

Planning a trip to Unicoi this fall? No problem. In fact, there are still plenty of available activities for park visitors to enjoy. More info at http://www.unicoilodge.com. For more info, call the DNR office in Gainesville at 770-535-5498.
