Guernsey State Park

Guernsey State Park is a 6,227-acre recreation area around the Guernsey Reservoir, fed by the North Platte River.

The clear, wide waters of the 2,375-acre lake are popular with boaters. The high limestone bluffs surrounding the park are topped with challenging hiking trails.

The Civilian Conservation Corps developed the area in the 1930s, constructing a nine-hole golf course that is now abandoned. There are 13 miles of multi-use trails, and mountain bikes are permitted throughout the park. Wildlife includes antelope, mule deer and wild turkeys.

There are 142 primitive campsites at seven campgrounds. Backcountry camping is permitted throughout the park. Because the reservoir water levels fluctuate, fishing is poor.
