<p>The seven lakes were <a href="http://www.santeelakes.com/history.html">originally built</a> in 1961 and the entire complex has seen significant reenovations over the last five to 10 years.</p> <p>Lakes Six and Seven are devoted to <a href="http://www.santeelakes.com/camping1.html">camping</a> and were voted "The Best Campground in San Diego County" in San Diego's "Best 2007" poll. All campsites have access to WiFi, and RV sites have hook-ups for utilities, phone and cable.</p> <p>Billed as "one of the best <a href="http://www.santeelakes.com/fishing1.html">fishing</a> spots in Southern California," twice yearly the lakes are stocked with <a href="http://www.santeelakes.com/pdfs/Catfish_Season_Flyer_2.pdf">catfish</a> and trout and also feature bluegill, carp and bass. No Santee fishing license is needed; simply a daily permit for under $10.</p> <p>Pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, or row boats are <a href="http://www.santeelakes.com/boating.html">available for rent</a>.</p> <p>There are five different playground structures, and a <a href="http://www.examiner.com/outdoor-adventure-in-san-diego/the-sprayground-water-park-at-santee-lakes-worth-the-trip">Sprayground</a> "water park" available for children under 13 when a $2 wristband is purchased.
