EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A University of Oregon fraternity has apologized for its behavior after a campsite at Shasta Lake was found completely trashed.

Pictures were taken and posted to Facebook over the weekend that showed a campsite on Slaughterhouse Island covered in garbage, tents, clothes and other personal belongings.

Many of the items left at the campsite had “University of Oregon” or “Lambda Chi Alpha” logos on them.

Lambda Chi Alpha posted a statement on its Facebook page, vowing that those who were responsible for the destruction of the campsite will be held accountable, and would help clean up the mess.  

Though it is not known who all was involved at this time, we find this situation to be absolutely unacceptable. On behalf of any of our members involved, the UO Zeta Omicron Zeta Chapter would like to extend our deepest apologies for any destruction of Lake Shasta resort and the surrounding environment. Our Chapter has reached out to the United States Forest Service to arrange for our members to help in the clean-up of the environment.

The U.S. Forest Service said the estimated costs of clean-up is at least $10,000.
