Santee State Park

Santee State Park serves as headquarters for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers of all kinds from its ideal location near Interstates 95 and 26 on Lake Marion in the nationally known Santee Cooper Country.

The 2,500-acre park opened in 1949. Santee State Park is in Orangeburg County on the south shore of Lake Marion, one of the two Santee Cooper lakes (along with Lake Moultrie) that were created when more than 100,000 acres were flooded for electric power.

Lake Marion's flooded forest is across from the park, just one of the natural attractions that make the area a national draw for anglers (landlocked striped bass fishing was born on the Santee Cooper lakes) and other sportsmen as well as bird watchers, swamp lovers and boaters under power and sail.
