Maybe Santee should be your vacation spot. The weather is temperate, the lake is full of water and fish, the golf courses are summer ready, and our restaurants and hotels are rolling out the red carpet for visitors to enjoy their stays.
Santee's location is perfect for families who want to be economical and yet get the most bang for their bucks. We are located only 1 hour away from Charleston to the east, Columbia to the west and Florence to the north. You can also make Savannah a day trip as it is only 110 miles away. This makes Santee the perfect mid point for everything you want in a vacation.

The price is $4 for children and adults under 47" and $8 for children and adults over 48". If you are an Orangeburg County YMCA member, your price is reduced by $1.Lifeguards are on duty at all times.
