The Castle is the largest and most complex picnic shelter in Guernsey State Park. Although the shelter looks like a stronghold, it is easily accessible.
The log and stone structure was constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the mid-1930s as a part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's plan to provide jobs and conserve the environment. The workmanship in this and other CCC structures around the park are exceptional* especially when you consider that most of the material was hand crafted.
The arch in the west end of the structure frames a scenic view of Laramie Peak. Another arch in the museum also provides a view of the peak.
*Originally the roof was made of hand split shake shingles. It was later replaced by asphalt shingles similar to other structures in the park.
Vandalism has become a major threat to these historic structures. Use them wisely and leave them for your children's and grandchildren's pleasure.
