There are 3 shortish nature trails and one longish hiking/biking trail at Santee. The nature trails are great but the 7.5 mile (not 6) hiking/biking trail is Way great. Start out at the trailhead on the right as you enter Santee Park. The trail is really an out-and-back with a few smaller loops within the passage. Regardless, this is a super trail that will give you some nice glimpses of Lake Marion.
The trail can be enjoyed at any time of year but I like doing it in the fall, and I like spending a whole day along itâ€™s length (walking). A small pack with a thermos of coffee and a sandwich or three, and Iâ€™m in Santee Heaven on this trail. Beauty!
Meanwhile, back at the parkâ€¦enjoy the well maintained facility. Bring yer camping stuff, take a boat tour, take some pictures, have a picnic, play tennis, or go fishing.
Iâ€™m not much of a camping-cabin guy but Iâ€™ll have to admit, the cool looking cabins at Santee sparked my interest. ..especially the ones on the pier thingy. Outrageous!
Park staff at Santee is very friendly, too. Sweet!
