Vacation Days on Lake Marion
South Carolina’s Santee State Park
Santee State Park is an Ideal Destination
Found in the central part of the state, Santee is all of 60 miles southeast of Columbia, and 65 miles northwest from Charleston. Visitors to this state park are encouraged to fish, boat, hike and bike along the beautiful shorelines of the lake.
Fishing fans may cast out for bass, bream and catfish this vacation on Lake Marion, while nature lovers can enjoy a pontoon boat tour and some kayaking. Spend a day bird watching in this beautiful state park, home to the Santee Birding & Nature Festival held each spring.
Outdoor aficionados may also trek down a number of nature trails in the park, including the one mile Limestone Nature Trail, and the half mile Sinkhole Pond Nature Trail.
For a little more of a journey, try the Santee State Park Hiking & Mountain Biking Trail – a nearly eight-mile loop ideal for feet and wheels.
Follow your perfect day in the Santee State Park with a comfortable night’s stay at the Best Western hotel in Santee. Rest up for another day of fishing and hiking under South Carolina’s sun, and see you next year in Santee.
