State Park - Wyoming

Guernsey State Park surrounds the Guernsey Reservoir, an impoundment of the North Platte River, near the town of Guernsey in Platte County, Wyoming. The state park has campgrounds, boat ramps and hiking trails as well as exceptional examples of structures created by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The park has seven campgrounds and three boat ramps. Fish species include walleye, yellow perch and channel catfish. Fish populations are affected by the reservoir's twice-yearly draw-downs.

For a complete listing of park rules, visit park headquarters. Guernsey State Park is administered by the Division of State Parks, Historic Sites and Trails; Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources. 3/16 Camping Guernsey provides primitive and utility campsites at 13 campgrounds. All campsites are designated with parking area, picnic tables, fire grills. All major campgrounds have comfort stations and drinking water. In addition to campsite facilities the park has four reservable yurts available for an even more unique outdoor experience. A trailer dump station is also located at the south entrance to Guernsey State Park. CCC Structures This park provides some of the finest examples of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) work in the Rocky Mountain area. The Guernsey Museum, the Castle and Brimmer Point are grand examples of the work done by the CCC crews and are available to explore. The museum was constructed so as to overlook the lake and Laramie Peak. The building itself is made of hand hewn timbers and hand forged iron. The Castle, with its giant fireplace and winding steps, leads to an observation area for a spectacular view of the park. Mountain Biking & Hiking An extensive network of trails was originally planned and partially built during the operation of the CCC camps. Ever since that time hiking and trail use has been a major feature at Guernsey State Park. Approximately 12 miles of CCC trails have been restored on the park. Start your trail hiking adventure at the trail kiosk located at the Brimmer Point turnoff. Oregon Trail & Register Cliff The Oregon Trail was one of the primary routes used by the immigrants’ westward migration across the plains from 1841 to 1869. Today, in many parts of Wyoming, remnants of The Oregon Trail can still be seen. Some of the best examples are the “ruts”; located just 1/2 mile south of the town of Guernsey, off Highway 26. Register Cliff located two miles southeast of Guernsey provided travelers with a “chalkboard” where they placed their names for those who followed. The landmark still remains much the way it looked to pioneers on wagon trains journeying west. NOTE Fishing at the park is limited to the spillway area. An annual silt run drains the reservoir for a few weeks shortly after July 4th. LOCATION Guernsey State Park is located near the town of Guernsey which is reached by exiting I- 25 at Exit 92 and traveling east on Hwy 26 for 15 miles.
