    Policy changes will remain in effect through the August 22nd, 2021.

    • Reservations are limited to one (1) site per day (Day-Use, Campsite, or Lodge).

    • Lodges have been reduced to 50% capacity: Beretta Lodge (10), and Jeffersonian (7).

    • Campsites are limited to three cars. Day-Use Sites are limited to two cars. Lodges are limited to six cars. Vehicles over this limit cannot enter the property. All groups upon arrival must check-in with University Camp staff to receive parking passes.

    • Cloth face coverings are required indoors and outdoors on Texas State campuses unless you are exceeding 6-foot social distancing expectations in common-use areas. 

    • Physical distancing must be maintained in common-use spaces if not wearing a cloth face covering. This includes members of your own group. Individuals in common-use spaces of University Camp must maintain physical distancing from others if not wearing a cloth face covering.
      • Common-use spaces include: Trails, parking lots, Day-Use Area, or any other areas not specifically reserved

    University Camp staff will warn those violating the above policies once. Patrons (and all others in their group) will be asked to leave University Camp if violations persist. These policies are in place for the safety of our patrons, and those that work to maintain University Camp.
