Skyline Park is located on the southeastern outskirts of Napa, California. An 850-acre wilderness area, the park is managed by a non-profit organization formed to protect the area. Hikers, bikers, and horseback riders enjoy more than 25 miles of trails that they share with deer and wild turkey. The hours of the park are from 7 am to 5 pm, but tent, RV and horse camping is allowed. While some light pollution still encroaches on the park, the large open camping areas provide 360 views to the horizon.
