    Overview

    Description

    Season for Peak Fees: 05/15 to 09/15

    In the middle of San Francisco Bay sits Angel Island State Park, offering spectacular views of the San Francisco skyline, the Marin Headlands and Mount Tamalpais. The island is also alive with history. Three thousand years ago the island was a fishing and hunting site for Coastal Miwok Indians. It was later a haven for Spanish explorer Juan de Ayala, a cattle ranch, and a U.S. Army post. From 1910 to 1940, the island processed thousands of immigrants. During World War II, Japanese and German POWs were held on the island, which was also used as a jumping-off point for American soldiers returning from the Pacific. In the '50s and '60s, the island was home to a Nike missile base. Today, there are two active Coast Guard stations - at Point Blunt and Point Stuart - on the island. Angel Island became a State Park in 1958.

    Check the State Parks website for additional information on the weather, suggested day hikes, or to see the park brochure, campground map, park photos, video, and more. Information available will vary from park to park.Click here

    Skywest Golf Course

    The 18-hole Skywest Golf Course facility in Hayward, California features 6,862 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. Tree-lined fairways can cause the usual kinds of trouble for errant tee shots, though large greens tend to play true. The par-3s all play long at 140-200 yards, and two lakes insist that you pay them attention on the front and back nines.
