Located 55 miles southwest of Juneau, Angoon is the gateway to Admiralty Island National Monument. The Tlingit community of 430 residents is perched on a strip of land between Chatham Strait on the island's west coast and turbulent Kootznahoo Inlet, which leads into the heart of the 1,493-square-mile island.
In the small village of Angoon, on the west side of Admiralty Island, noises and distractions of the city fade away and are replaced by the endless quiet of old-growth forest and the tides lapping on the shore. Living here puts you right in the heart of the pristine Tongass National Forest and offers incredible variety, with history, fishing, insight into Native Tlingit clan culture, breathtaking views, and close access to one of the densest populations of brown bears in the world.
Angoon is home to around 450 year-round residents, which increases in summer with visitors who want to fish, recreate and enjoy the city’s culture, history, forested paths, and laid-back lifestyle. Many of the people you will meet while in town are Native Alaskans of the Tlingit tribe, which has been in this area for more than 1,000 years. Their culture thrives through day-to-day subsistence activities, special potlatches, and community celebrations.
For those who enjoy kayaking, a 32-mile trail system begins in Angoon and links to eight major lakes and seven portages; allowing paddlers to travel from the east end of Mitchell Bay to Mole Harbor in Seymour Canal. For those who prefer to hike, a sand spit and an observation tower along the creek are accessible via a one-mile trail.
Angoon is served by a single general store, Angoon Trading Company. The store offers a variety of items, albeit in limited supply. Items you may find in the store include groceries and clothing, lumber and hardware; and gifts and sundries.
