Berryessa Highlands is an unincorporated community in Napa County, California. It lies on the southeastern shore of Lake Berryessa.[1] The Berryessa Highlands Development Company developed much of the community, and in 1981 still owned approximately 125 lots in the subdivision.[2] It is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Berryessa Natural Area and Putah Creek State Wildlife Area is to the east.[3]

In August 2020, the community was evacuated due to the Hennessey Fire. The fire resulted in the destruction and damage of many homes in Berryessa Highlands.[4]
