Guernsey, deriving its name from an area rancher, author and Wyoming legislator Charles A. Guernsey, was incorporated in 1902 and served as an important highway and railway shipping point. Located a few miles west of historic Fort Laramie, Guernsey is the center of renewed military activity each summer as hundreds of National Guard troops invade the area for their annual summer training sessions. Located nearby is Guernsey State Park, home of Guernsey Reservoir. Well known for its boating opportunities, the lake is home to no catch-able fish species as it is drawn down each summer for local farmer’s irrigation purposes.
