San Diego--Santee Lakes Park
We are spending December in the San Diego suburb of Santee, where they have built an amazing regional park around a water reclamation project that recycles water for the community. Seven lakes which have bass, catfish and are stocked with trout are surrounded by picnic areas walking trails and a campground run by the city with about 300 full hookup campsites. Many snowbirds spend one or more months here in the winter and I have to say that Santee had done a great job with this. They must make a bundle on camping fees and the people who stay here spend money in the economy--a win-win for something built around a water treatment facility. The bonus is that we are about 25 minutes drive from San Diego and all it offers! It is very beautiful and I will be posting pictures from here over the next several weeks.
