“Guernsey State Park Review”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Guernsey State Park campground. family of 5 with a 33' travel trailer.

Pros:
full hookups
nicely spaced campground
close to lake

Cons:
a lot of nats/flies
low lake water level
camper sights semi-leveled

Yes the campground is close to the railroad tracks, but the trains are not buzzing through. the noise is not as bad as other reviewers make them to be

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

This is a crowded campground with minimal facilities. Bathhouses with pit toilets, no lights, no running water. It seems to cater to the boating crowd, along with their RVs, trailers and assorted paraphernalia. I am a tent camper, and prefer a more natural, peaceful environment.

The official State Park map doesn't mention it, but the BNSF runs right through the park, within a few hundred yards of the campgrounds. As the park is located amongst the richest coal reserves in the country, the trains run 24/7/365.

A beautifully maintained park near Guernsey, Wy. This park has several types of campsites, from rocky cliffs overlooking the lake to sites near the beach. It's a boaters paradise, has several hiking trails, and offers a beautiful cliff drive along the reservoir.

Many of the prime sites require reservations which can be made online (sites near the beach and the hidden coves such as Sandy Beach, Sandy Point, Deadman's Gulch, and Black Canyon Cove). There are great sites for sure, especially if you want to keep your boat in the water, but on a prime June weekend, probably <30% of all sites were actually full. Unfortunately many of these great sites have signs that say reservations required, even though no one may have them reserved. Initially the lady at the entrance said we couldn't set up in those spots and she didn't know which ones were reserved and which ones weren't. Keep asking. We had to track down a ranger to find a master list so we could find a "reservable" site that might be open.

Several of the sports north of where the road crosses the dam are great cliff spots where you should be able to claim a spot without reservation (Fish Canyon, Black Canyon Cove, Long Canyon), but beware there were lots of annoying gnats in this area. We stayed at Sandy Beach, right off the beach, a great shaded spot, except for the trains rolling in regularly at night.
