Santee Campground is a five star hotel for all the wildlife lovers out there. Choose from endless sites at the Lakeshore Campground, or go for the smaller Cypress View Campground. Both are easily accessible and offer great views of Lake Marion. There’s nothing quite like waking up to the sight of rabbits, deer, and a great blue heron in the distance. Don’t feel like roughing it? Book a cabin right atop the lake, instead.

Campgrounds are good but lake is dangerous. Don't take your own boat! Opt for the guided fishing trip.
