Our Story

The City of Edna Bay is on Kosciusko Island off of the northwestern side of Prince of Wales Island. Edna Bay started as a logging camp in the 1940s and remained so until State of Alaska land sales in 1983. Families invested in land and, when logging was no longer a viable occupation, focused on commercial and sport fishing. Edna Bay became a city in 2014. The fertile waters of Sea Otter Sound provide for Alaska’s newest second-class city. Sea Otter Sound is also a place for spectacular viewing of marine mammals, whales, sea otters and seals; salmon make their way to the many streams and rivers that empty into the sound from Kosciusko Island.

Edna Bay is accessible by air or water. Airplanes and boats land at the state float three miles by road from the general store and lodging services. An extensive road system, created during the heyday of logging, gives visitors access to vast recreational opportunities. There are many creeks and lakes to fish in, mountains to scale and beautiful places to drive and hike.
