“Beautiful Camping, Cabins, and RV Sites as Well”
Review of Santee Lakes

This place is a well-kept secret. There are seven lakes on this 190 acre property and they offer lakeside tent camping, and have six cabins for rent for about $100 a night, with several being "floating cabins" right on the water. For us, we love the RV park surrounded by running creeks and trees. All RV sites are full hook-ups, and the price is very reasonable. This Santee Lakes is owned by Padre Dam, and uses re-claimed waste water for recreational purposes, but do not let that discourage you from coming here. The place is absolutely immaculate and there is no odor at all. This is a real ecological experiment and is very "green" if you are interested in such things. When you camp or RV here, you feel like you are out in the woods somewhere, especially in the sites near the running creek, the East Loop.

You can rent a paddle boat, kayak, row boat then either buy some food there or bring your own. You are then well equipped to satisfy your own appetite as well as the myriad of ducks that will follow you around! A completely fun and exercise-filled day!
