“Beautiful lake, no cell coverage, ANTS”

Reviewed Jul 17, 2018

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful, if pricey site close to San Diego. There are five or six separate lakes and lot of activities: fishing, pedal boats and carts, a nice little shop and a great dog walk. Tons of families. I was in site 148 and there was zero cell coverage. WiFi is available and good but at a price - $10 a week for one unit. ... more

“Loved our time at Santee Lakes”

Reviewed May 17, 2017

Overall Rating

Santee Lakes Campground was the perfect place to spend the winter months in Southern California. The location is great, being only about 20 minutes east of most San Diego attractions and hot spots, yet far enough outside the city limits that it doesn't feel overcrowded. This is a great family campground. The facilities are meticulou... more

$44/night included 10% tax and $1 per night fee per dog during our stay in March 2015. Santee Lakes was a good home base for us to explore San Diego. It's 30 minutes from the beach, but offers a more rustic, wooded campground feel compared to RV parks downtown. The park is surprisingly large, with 300+ campsites grouped into eight or s... more

“Beautiful park, but pick the right spot. ”

This is almost a taleof two campgrounds. The area you stay in will leave you with a different impression of thisplace. We stayed in the Lakeshore loop. It is right on the lake,so has the most scenic setting, it is also the best place in the park if you need cell signal. The spots right on the lake are mostly reserved for daily or ... more

“Perfect Location - Easy Access to Beaches and Trails ”

Reviewed Jan 14, 2015

Overall Rating

This was also our second time staying in Santee Lakes - West Oak Loop #217. As the prior review pointed out, the campground offers a variety of site options. Most sites are on a sandy, dirt level surface. There are a few paved, pull thru sites. Most sites are wide and some offer shade. The campground is extremely safe, quiet and is loc... more
