Santee Lakes is located near San Diego, Ca. The campground is part of the Padre Dam Municipal water district, San Diego, Ca. It has a large day use area along with several camping areas that are located around the seven lakes. It is a very nice campground with very clean and roomy sites. Not all of their campsites are on the lake.
The site we had was perfect, on the lake and the free wifi they offered has excellant signal.
We left home on Friday afternoon and arrived at the campground about 3pm. The sun was shining and in no time we were sitting out enjoying the ducks and the sunshine.
Saturday turned out to be a day without sun but the temperature was comfortable. We lazed around the campsite all day and watched the various species of water fowl. We enjoyed an early evening campfire while listening to the Angels baseball game of XM radio.
Sunday I got up and walked Buddee to the nearby newspaper stand and picked up a Sunday paper to enjoy with my morning coffee, as Robin caught another snooze. On Sunday we had to pack up and head back to the grind of the weekday workday that were fast approaching. Of course without the work weekdays there would be no camping weekends.

We left early Wed May 20th for a extended Memorial Weekend on the American River @ Coloma RV Resort, Coloma, Ca. located behind Sutters Mill off the Old 49er trail, Hwy 49. It was a beautiful weekend with weather temp's in the upper 80's and low 90's. The water temp of the river was said to be in the upper 40's. I did not check it to verify. It was a lazy weekend of river watching with people rafting, canoeing and inner tubing on the river. Great weekend.
