Santee Lakes an Outdoor Heaven & Fun Run September 24th (Santee Parks Part 4)

If you are looking for a tranquil place to fish or a place to enjoy some quality family time, you need look no further for an outdoor heaven.

Fifty years ago Padre Dam Municipal Water District created the popular 190 acre Santee Lakes by recycling waste water into seven lakes. The focus of the Lakes is Recreation, Restoration, and Re-investment.

Besides fishing, where you only need a low cost fishing permit for the day, Santee Lakes has a menu of outdoor opportunities such as boat rentals including row boats, kayaks, canoes, peddle boats; Camping with 300 full hookup RV campsites and the recent addition of 10 cabins on or near the lake; picnic areas for large and small groups; playgrounds; and even a Sensory Gardens for the sight impaired. Please see the Santee Lake website for more information.

You won't want to miss the second annual Lap the Lakes 5K Run/Walk and 1/2 mile Jr Fun Run on Saturday September 24,2011, hosted by the Santee Lakes Foundation. For more details go to the Santee Lakes Website for details.

If you haven't visited this haven for outdoor activities, you will need to do it today. Even if you just take a stroll or feed the ducks.
