EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

Pictures have surfaced on social media of a campsite in northern California that was essentially trashed, and the University of Oregon said they're investigating who may have left the mess over the weekend.

The pictures were posted on a public Facebook page of empty tents, clothing, trash bags, and other debris strewn all over the campsite and in Lake Shasta.

The campsite is located in the Shasta-Trinity National Forest.

Robin Holmes, the Vice President of Student Life at University of Oregon, responded in a written statement:

The manner in which the Shasta-Trinity forest area was left is disgraceful.

Trips to this area have become an annual event for fraternities and sororities all along the West Coast. It is one the University of Oregon does not sponsor or condone in any way.

The university is actively investigating the situation and will take action as appropriate. We are working with authorities to learn all we can and determine who is responsible.

One fraternity national organization, Zeta Omicron Zeta, has taken the commendable step of suspending all of its chapters' activities until the situation is addressed. We hope other national organizations will follow their lead.
