Shingletown Airport (FAA LID: 0Q6) was a public-use airport located three miles (5 km) northeast of Shingletown, in Shasta County, California, United States. This general aviation airport covers an area of 120 acres (49 ha) and has one runway.

Effective October 1, 2002, the airport was closed indefinitely due to the decayed condition of the unmaintained tarmac.[1] Today, the airstrip serves the community as the site for a large annual star party each summer.[2]
