Fodor's Alaska 2014
A half-dozen miles from Craig is the Tlingit village of Klawock, with a sawmill, cannery, hatchery, and the island's only airport. The town is best known for its striking totem poles in Totem Park. Several of these colorful poles were moved here in the 1930s; others are more recent carvings. You can watch carvers restoring old totems at the carving shed, across the road from the grocery store.
Along the bay you'll find St. John's by the Sea Catholic Church, with stained-glass windows picturing Native Alaskans.
Prince of Wales Hatchery. Klawock is also home to Prince of Wales Hatchery, one of the state's most effective hatcheries. It's open year-round ($2) and it also has a small visitor center with an aquarium full of young coho salmon. Call ahead to confirm hours. Mile 9 along Craig-Hollis Hwy., Craig, 99921. 907/755–2231. www.powha.org. Daily 8-4:30.
