This is a huge 190-acre park and recreation area with a marina, lake, campground, playground and trails in the heart…More of Santee.
The seven lakes were originally built in 1961 and the entire complex has seen significant reenovations over the last five to 10 years.
Lakes Six and Seven are devoted to camping 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.
Billed as "one of the best fishing spots in Southern California," twice yearly the lakes are stocked with catfish and trout and also feature bluegill, carp and bass. No Santee fishing license is needed; simply a daily permit for under $10.
