Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve, Santee, California

Date of Stay: January, 2019 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This was our 5th annual visit. The month of Jan. 2019 was rainy and our site literally flooded over almost completely. Several attempts asking for help was futile, having been told that this was our personal responsibility, and we should go to Home Depot and purchase pavers as walkways. As 10 year RVers, we have never heard of such a thing. Maintenance men attempted to help, after admitting the site definitely needed a major upgrading, but to no avail. The site provided no true camping, family visits, or just pleasant sitting outside. It never dried up completely, just was a muddy mess. Management, when confronted, provided no resolve whatsoever, nor offered to move us. There is also very limited cell coverage and a major ant problem, plus is one of the highest priced park we have encountered The nightly rate was calculated based on a 1 month stay. We won't be back. We camped at Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve in a Motorhome.
