McGrath State Beach
Due to flooding, as of 7/10/2019, McGrath State Beach is closed until further notice.
The park will reopen when flood waters recede and cleanup/repairs have been done.
We apologize for any inconvienence.
McGrath State Beach is one of the best bird-watching areas in California, with the lush riverbanks of the Santa Clara River and sand dunes along the shore. Two miles of beach provide surfing and fishing opportunities, however, swimmers are urged to use caution because of strong currents and riptides. The park offers campsites by the beach.
