  • Description - Tongass National Forrest

    Embracing nearly a million acres of old growth rainforest, alpine tundra, and rugged coastline, Admiralty Island National Monument and the Kootznoowoo Wilderness offer unrivaled opportunities for solitude and primitive recreation in Southeast Alaska. The native people call this island 'Kootznoowoo,' meaning 'Fortress of the Bear.' Indeed, Admiralty Island is home to the highest concentration of brown bears in the world; more than all the Lower 48 states combined. While famous for its bears, Admiralty Island offers much more to visitors and residents alike. Spectacular runs of wild salmon fill the island's creeks each summer, while remote mountain lakes offer the ultimate in wilderness fishing. Admiralty Island also has a rich cultural heritage, which is evident in the traditional native village of Angoon, the island's only permanent settlement. The Admiralty Island Canoe Route and the Oliver Inlet Tram provide access to this pristine wilderness, and 14 public use cabins are available for rent throughout the island. We invite you to explore Admiralty Island National monument using the links at right, or contact the Monument Office for more information.
