Craig Sap, Angeles District Superintendent
MALIBU, Calif.—California State Parks has closed several campgrounds and areas at Point Mugu State Park that are being impacted by a partial closure of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH), due to heavy rains, debris, mud and rock slides. The PCH is currently closed eastbound at Las Posas Road and westbound at Yerba Buena Road, and will likely remain closed until late this week, depending on the weather. Debris, mud and rock slides are of concern in this area.
Closures at Point Mugu State Park include Thornhill Broome and Sycamore Canyon campgrounds, Mugu Beach and Sycamore Cove Beach and the backcountry access along the PCH. Closures will remain in effect until further notice. Campers with reservations may contact the Angeles District Office at 818-880-0363. Camping is available at nearby Leo Carrillo and Malibu Creek state parks.
