This island, dedicated to the famous Tlingit leader, is located in the town's protected harbor. A footbridge leads to the Chief Shakes Tribal House, a replica of an authentic clan dwelling created with intricate details. Surrounding the house are several totem poles carved with traditional designs.
A collection of petroglyphs, which are early forms of native artwork, can be found on rocks along this beach in Wrangell. A boardwalk provides access to view more than 50 different petroglyphs, and replicas of several designs are displayed on the deck for visitors to make pencil rubbings on.
Anan Creek is an ancient Tlingit native fishing site that pulls double duty as a restaurant for bears enticed by the area's salmon population. Accessible only by boat or plane, the area is home to a covered deck built by the U.S. Forest Service that allows visitors to watch the bears from a safe distance.
