Rains Close Public Campgrounds
Winter storms left no major damage after blowing through southern California, but the rains shuttered some campgrounds, the Ventura County Star reported.
Besides a few inches of rain, the storms caused state park and road closures from flooding and debris, dangerous surf, water rescues and water line breaks.
Sycamore Cove Beach was expected to open at noon Monday, said Craig Sap, district superintendent for state parks.
La Jolla Group Camp was expected to open midweek, and Thornhill Broome Campground will be closed until Friday (March 7), Sap said.
Officials will make a safety assessment at Point Mugu State Park this morning (March 3) to see whether the park can reopen, said Sheila Braden, a park ranger for the National Park Service. That assessment will also determine whether Circle X Ranch and Rancho Sierra Vista will open.
