The deck of our cabin proved to be the perfect place to kick back and enjoy some wildlife viewing. Listening to the birds and identifying them was also fun. We had the opportunity to see a summer tanager, a beautiful red bird! The herons, egrets...More

Recently the park got a "facelift", updated electrical, and water supply, fresh mulch at sites , cleared some trees making it easier for the larger RV's. Quiet for the most part, except early rising fishermen, and loud boats!

Although we would not brave the temperatures or mosquitoes in summer, Santee was a nice place for a February camping trip. It was quiet and clean. Because of the timing, we did not see any of the promised wildlife, not even any birds, but it...More
