June is a spectacular month to visit Santee. The weather is warming up and Lake Marion could not be more beautiful as the sun rises for another day. Fishermen get out early, trying to catch the one that won't get away. Remember, if you are fishing, it is unlawful to take or attempt to take striped bass from June 1 through September 30.
The golf courses in Santee are well groomed and ready for players of every handicap. Lake Marion Golf Club, Santee Cooper Country Club, and Santee National Golf Course offer carts, driving ranges, convenient tee times and there are pro shops and snack bars available seven days a week. The Golf Shop at Lake Marion offers a large selection of golf shoes to fit men and women. Each golf course is challenging with water holes and tree lined fairways with awesome views.
The Orangeburg County/Town of Santee Aquatic Center is now open for the summer months. This complex is located on Bass Drive next to the Conference Center. This is a great place for families to come and enjoy the pool and the slides, picnic areas, and even a small party room is available for birthday parties. There is handicapped entry into the pool; everyone can enjoy the cool water.
Santee State Park has a fishing pier, playgrounds, biking and hiking trails, a park store, camping facilities, 20 lake front cabins for rent, along with 10 pier-based cabins. You can even rent kayaks and canoes to venture into the cypress swamp and photograph the flora and fauna there. Or, take a Fisheagle Tour around the lake and learn about the lake while you enjoy the scenery. Sunsets are gorgeous at the lake.
Our hotels and restaurants are plentiful and ready to serve up some the best Southern hospitality that Santee is noted for.
Come to Santee this month and enjoy the best beginning of summer you've ever had!
