Sundown on the Forest is an album by the rock group Kingfish. It was recorded over a period of several years with different combinations of musicians, and released in 1999. It was the first studio album by Kingfish since Trident in 1978.[3][4][5][6]

The various musical lineups on Sundown on the Forest include past and present members of Kingfish, such as Matthew Kelly, Steve Kimock, Barry Sless, Barry Flast, Danny "Rio" DeGennaro, Fred Campbell, Mookie Siegel, Robbie Hoddinott, Jimmy Sanchez, and Ana Rizzo. A number of guest musicians and singers also perform on the album, including Jenni Muldaur, the daughter of Maria Muldaur.

Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead, another former member of Kingfish, appears on several songs, and sings lead vocals on "Padlock Cufflinks", as well as a duet with Barry Flast on "Starship Ride".
