Due to historic flooding along the Blanco River on Memorial Day Weekend 2015, the Texas State University Camp has been temporarily closed. The camp sustained major damage to the campgrounds and riverfront. None of the lodges were damaged, but debris along the riverfront has created a safety hazard. Clean up of the area has started and will continue through the fall. University Camp will reopen Tuesday, January 19th, 2016.
