MALIBU—Day-use areas at Malibu Creek State Park opened earlier last week, a month since the Woolsey Fire forced the region to close. The campground remains closed until further notice is given.
Due to the Woolsey Fire, a number of structures belonging to the Malibu Creek State Park were destroyed. Employee residences, the historic Sepulveda Adobe, the Red House, Hope Ranch, the historic Adamson rowboats, and Reagan Ranch were among the structures lost.
Malibu Creek State Park is 25 miles from downtown Los Angeles and features an array of activities. Park gates are open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Visitors can hike, rock climb, mountain bike, fish, and go horseback riding. Malibu Creek stretches for 14 miles and is the principal watercourse for the Santa Monica Mountains to the Malibu Lagoon.
Campgrounds are also available, though they are currently still closed due to an ongoing investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. For the safety of the public, all camping reservations for the park have been cancelled until the campground re-opens. For those with reservations, they will be contacted and refunds will be provided as necessary.
