  • The yurts are very cool. However, they're pretty far from the lake so you're basically forced to drive to the lake. The yurts do not have electricity/power outlets. However, they have solar panels that run a fan and lights. There also isn't any running water near the yurts, just outhouse bathrooms. The state park really seems geared towards boats and jet skis. There isn't much else to do there, and the beach is pretty small.
  • Cliff jumping was the easiest I've ever had available. I love cliff jumping but sometimes it's a little risky. Sometimes you have to clear certain rocks or worry about not jumping too far, but not here. It was a cliff and you jump off about 30 feet into just water. Jump at your own risk of course, but it was easy and great for adrenaline junkies. I would recommend stopping by.
  • Beautiful park. Easy access to campsites. Close to historical sites such as Ft. Laramie, Oregon Trail Ruts and Register Cliff. The lake is huge and is usually full - although it is emptied several times per year. Plenty of sandy beaches for the kids to wade and swim. Are you a lakeside partier who has a boat or jet ski and enjoys water sports? This is your scene. Expect loud music, all day parties with varying amounts of alcohol consumption, droning jet skis, ski boats and topping the list were the unmuffled jet boats with supercharged big block chevy's. Want to get away for some "peace and quiet"? The partying from a few campsites will continue well into the night. The last night we were there, I saw one drunk woman fall down right beside the vault toilet and her beer bottle smashed all over. She couldn't seem to get up so I stood up to go help the struggling woman and about then, her friend came out of the toilet to help her up. I was worried about the glass as my family used that toilet during the day. I went down to see what needed to be cleaned off the sidewalk first thing in the morning before any of my kids headed that way. Luckily, they or someone had already cleaned it up. The drunk woman did leave a pile of puke though. There is NO fishing here as the lake is totally drained a couple of times per year. You can float the North Platte but that is about it for angling. Don't even think about fishing from the banks. I tried 4 different public access areas and they were all basically for put in/take out for float trips. Two other things to bear in mind - both laden and unladen BNSF coal trains will rumble right beside the South side campgrounds all day and all night. They blow their horns to warn wildlife off the tracks - plenty of deer around Guernsey. Also, while we were there, the National Guard was having night time gunnery practice in their helicopters. The range where they fire is adjacent to the park. I am glad we went as we got to see the historical sites that we wanted to visit. Nice looking park - just not our scene.
  • The Castle for Steve and Leslie Then's Wedding! BEAUTIFUL Scenery!
  • This is a beautiful place with a beautiful lake and it's really quite. (Please keep it that way future visitors)
