     State Parks officials say that just two months after it reopened, the campground at McGrath State Beach in Oxnard is closed again due to flooding.

   It's due to a natural and recurring problem with a water build-up at the Santa Clara River estuary that backs up into a portion of the campground and access roads.

   Officials say the campgrounds will remain off limits until the water recedes and the campgrounds are repaired and cleaned up.

   It's unknown when that will be.

   People can still use the beach at McGrath, but to get there you will have to park either at Mandalay State Beach in Oxnard or Surfer's Knoll in Ventura Harbor and then walk the coastline to McGrath.
