State To Reopen Guernsey State Park Today
GUERNSEY, Wyo. (AP) — The state parks department is reopening part of Guernsey State Park in southeast Wyoming.
The park has been closed since last Saturday, when a wildfire chased out hundreds of campers and visitors.
The wildfire is now mostly out and campers, boaters and visitors will be allowed into unburned areas Friday afternoon.
Domenic Bravo of the state parks department warns that visitors should stay out of burned areas and be cautious of burned or weakened trees that could fall.
Skyline Drive and the North Entrance to Long Canyon will be open, but Lakeshore Drive on the east side of Guernsey Reservoir will remain closed.
Sandy Beach boat ramp will be open, but the Newell Bay ramp remains closed.
Fire restrictions limit campers to charcoal grills with lids and propane stoves.
