The Reservation, formerly known as Camp Flastacowo, is deeply rooted in the history of Florida State University. This waterfront park and conference center has been a gem for the university and community since 1920. Our ancestors’ vision was to acquire waterfront property southwest of campus to provide a pristine recreational water feature for FSU students to come and relax and socialize in a healthy outdoor environment. The Rez continues to thrive through FSU’s Campus Recreation Department. The Reservation continues to offer outstanding recreational programming that our predecessors envisioned by offering low- and high-challenge ropes programming, open rec hours, a 35-foot climbing wall, outdoor pursuits, adventure trips and the waterfront activities of canoeing, kayaking and sailing. And Camp Flastacowo continues to promote outdoor adventure programming for youngsters in our community.
