California campers will have more opportunities to enjoy McGrath State Beach, because a closure has been delayed for two months.

State park officials had planned to close the beach in Oxnard after Labor Day, because the state could not afford a $500,000 sewer line replacement.

California state parks announced Wednesday that the beach will stay open until Nov. 1, and it will commit $100,000 to repairs and apply for a $250,000 federal grant.

Money from local governments and other donations could cover the rest of the costs.
