Camp Guernsey is a NGB Level 2 Joint Training Center consisting of more than 78,000 acres of maneuver area, training ranges, and 64 square miles of air space which provide for combined arms training using multiple scenarios over varied terrain. Camp Guernsey can support up to an entire brigade of troops, maneuver, and equipment. Camp Guernsey exists to facilitate and support realistic combat training for current and future American fighting forces.
The camp’s rural locale in southeastern Wyoming offers many training advantages. Noise, movement, and training restrictions are limited. Accessibility from road, rail and air provide flexible options for troop, equipment, and material movement. A dedicated, fully-qualified staff currently supports DoD and Non-DoD customers for all types of training 24/7/365.
Camp Guernsey was built on the tradition of the frontier forts of America’s early years. Frontier forts were often the vanguard of defense in the American West. Camp Guernsey continues this tradition by providing realistic, combat-based training opportunities for continental and deploying American forces. Customers from all branches of the Department of Defense, other federal agencies, Wyoming state and local agencies, and civilian entities, train here.
