Santee State Park offers cabins, camping, biking, hiking, boating and fishing in the heart of one of the nations best-known outdoors destinations Santee Cooper Country. The park sits along Lake Marion, one of the two lakes (the others Moultrie) that gave birth to Americas inland striped bass fishery. Together, the lakes cover more than 170,000 acres and now also are known for their abundant populations of huge catfish. The parks rondette cabins, including 10 on piers over the lake, have been hosting outdoorsmen and families for generations. A community meeting building, with its large, screened-in grilling facility, also attracts groups. Out in the lake across from the park is Lake Marions flooded cypress forest. Pontoon boat tours into the lakes swampy headwaters are based out of the parks marina/park store.

Was not maintained, very easy to get lost. Not much water access unless your dog likes to wander.

nice simple trail ideal for bringing your kids. one small bridge to cross and that's about it. not much of a scenic route but a nice near mile walk for exercise.

The only trail open was the sinkhole pond trail. Nice short trail with lots of wild life and a few large sinkholes.

Nice walk in the woods. Wrong turn had us turn it into a figure 8 instead of a regular loop. Enjoyed it!

Each year we drive down to visit with family in the Charleston area and also head down to Florida. This park is a favorite stop of ours to get out and spend a day taking a break and exploring the trails. The kids absolutely love the easy going trail. We enjoy playing "pinecone baseball" with the large pinecones along the nature trail and always wrap up by playing at the playground for a while.

We took our bikes on this trail. The kids had to hope off bikes a couple times due to sharp turns and elevation changes. Geocache is also present on this trail.
