Swimming - GUERNSEY


Guernsey State Park is beautifully situated around Guernsey Reservoir. Guernsey State Park has long been an attraction to boaters, water skiers and swimmers. Its miles of shoreline provide public access to the reservoir which is suitable for all types of water-based recreation activities.



The entire reservoir is open to swimming activities. Actual “beaches” are located at the Parks’ Sandy Beach, Sandy Point and Sandy Cove Campgrounds.


Swimming activities are available as water levels allow, generally April through September are suitable for swimming. Daylight hours provide the safest time for swimming activities.


Appropriate Daily Use and Overnight Camping fees apply.

Site Status


!! Despite recent fire restrictions instituted by the Platte County Commission, an enjoyable camping experience is still possible at Guernsey State Park.

Propane grills and stoves and charcoal grills can still be used to prepare popular camping dishes and provide adequate warmth. These grills must have covers/lids and be within an arm’s length when lit.

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