McGrath State Beach is closed for all camping and day-use effective Sunday August 10, 2014 at Noon until further notice. The park has closed due to flooding, which is impacting all areas of the park.
The flooding is caused by the Santa Clara River Estuary backing up behind the naturally occurring sand bar blocking the mouth of the estuary. Re-opening is dependent on the floodwaters receding.
Please Note: For the current status of this park, please call (805) 968-1033.
