Where to stay near Santee South Carolina

Hi,

I'm going to be passing through Santee SC for one night on the way to Florida in April. Looking for a CG or Park thats quick and eazy, has pull thru's, and at least water and 30AMP hookups.

Doesnt have to be right in Santee, within 50 miles would work.

I've seen several options in that area but wonder if anyone here has any reviews?

I'd take a look at Santee SP. It is not that expensive to stay and close to I-95. I haven't stayed there so my experience is second hand. I've been told the roads are not well maintained but that could have been fixed by now. For just passing thru and spending a night, it might work. Hope this helps.

Even though I currently live in Ohio I'm very familiar with that area. I own property at Elloree (about 6 miles away from Santee). The DW and I like Santee State Park, but it's really not much. It's about 5 miles from Santee, all the roads and campsites are dirt and that's about it. For 1 night, passing through, I would suggest Santee Lakes Campground. It's right off of I 95 (Exit 102) It's a Good Sam park. It's right across the lake from Santee. They have their own web site that you can check out. I've never stayed there, but I think it's your best option. Let me know if you have more questions.

Having stayed at Santee Lakes Campground I can say that I am not impressed. LOTS of trees making night maneuvering a little stressful, level sites are not abundant though you can get level on most of them. Since it is near the water every site has a slope to it. I would rather push the extra time southbound and stay at New Green Acres off exit 53, or Push for Florance KOA northbound at exit 170.

Thanks All, Keep the info coming.

Just going by Google maps, Santee Lakes CG was #1 in my book. New Green Acres looks tempting tho.

Only planning on being there for 12 hours and hopefully sleeping for 8 of them. So my priorites are quiet, level sites, ez in/out of CG and to I95.

The pictures of Santee State Park look really nice but they only have electric i think. I would prefer water so I don't have to fill my tanks at all for the trip.
