Historical Features  - GUERNSEY 

About:

Guernsey State Park is a registered national historic landmark. The park has long been known as a haven for camping, boating and hiking, but its real treasure may lie in the wonderful work completed by the Civilian Conservation Corps that can be seen throughout the park. CCC projects like the “Castle,” the Guernsey Museum, historic picnic shelters, unique drinking fountains, trails, bridges and more are a must see at Guernsey State Park.

Site Status

 

Despite recent fire restrictions instituted by the Platte County Commission, an enjoyable camping experience is still possible at Glendo and Guernsey state parks.

Propane grills and stoves can still be used to prepare popular camping dishes and provide adequate warmth.

However, as always, park patrons are reminded that possession of all fireworks is prohibited.
