Santee Lakes is located in the heart of the east county just outside of San Diego, in the city of Santee. This beautiful, privately owned 194 acre park and 300 full hook-up Campground, surround seven scenic lakes. Our lakes are stocked year-round and there is no State license required, just a permit from our General Store. Cabins are available on the lakefront or on the water. Rent a pedal boat, rowboat or canoe and spend the day cruising around the islands. There are over 5 miles of trails for walking, running and biking and over 200 species of birds that call Santee Lakes home, for those bird watching enthusiasts. Rentable picnic sites and beautiful venues are available for your next event.
