Florida State University

Updated: August 24, 2005

The Florida State University Reservation is a 73-acre facility, with 10 active acres, located on beautiful Lake Bradford. The “Rez” is located 1/4 mile from the airport and four miles from the Florida State campus. In our unique natural setting you can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, picnicing, swimming and many other activities

The FSU Reservation was founded in 1920 by Mrs. S. L. Cawthon, the social director of Florida State College for Women. Its original name, Camp Flastacowo, was derived from the first few letters of the words Florida State College for Women. When the Florida State College for Women became Florida State University a new name was needed. After a campus wide name search in 1954, Camp Flastacowo changed its name to The Reservation. Through the years the “Rez” has continued to grow. Visitors include students, faculty and staff, and the local community. All are welcome, but please leave your pets at home. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

The FSU Reservation has a lot to offer Florida State students, faculty and staff, along with Panhandle residents including Recreation and Meeting Areas, Waterfront Activities, the FSU Challenge Ropes Course, Summer Camps, and other Special Events. Or, let us develop a retreat, staff development and/or leisure activity for your organization. Call us at 644-6892 for details!
