Fire Restrictions to Begin at Glendo & Guernsey

Platte County has officially instituted a fire restriction due to high fire danger which will be put into effect in Glendo and Guernsey State Park immediately!

No wood fires or open flames of any kind, tiki torches, or fireworks are allowed while under a fire ban. Please plan ahead and consider bringing a gas or propane stove, charcoal grill (with a lid), or gas fire pit instead. Thank you for your help and cooperation in protecting our resource!


Please be advised that the annual Guernsey silt run will soon take place. Water levels at Guernsey State Park will be affected drastically.

Beginning on July 5th, the release of water from Glendo reservoir will be decreased. Guernsey water levels will lower rapidly, with boat ramps becoming unusable by July 9th. The reservoir is expected to be suitable for swimming/boating again by the morning of July 27th.
