Boat Dock/Ramps - GUERNSEY


Guernsey State Park has three (3) bock ramp launching areas around the park. Each boat launching ramp area has at least one floating dock adjacent to the ramp.


  • The Main Boat Ramp is located on the east side on the reservoir just north of the dam.
  • Sandy Beach Boat Ramp is located on the west side of the park near the Sandy Beach Campground.
  • Boaters visiting the north end of the park will find a boat launch facility on the west end of the Long Canyon Campground.

Boat ramps are available as water levels allow, generally March - September.


All ramp/dock facilities require a  SPHS&T daily use permit.
