Prince William Sound


Otters floating in the waters of Prince WIlliam Sound

Wild, Wet, and Beautiful

The Sound is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Until you've been there you have no idea what southcentral Alaska is all about. Rainy day or sunny day, any day in Prince William Sound is a once in a lifetime day.

Bald eagles, brown bears, silver salmon, killer whales - they are all here in abundance. Come and see, take the time.

Forest Service Districts

The Glacier Ranger District (GRD) of the Chugach National Forest encompasses most of western Prince William Sound, while the Cordova Ranger District (CRD) administers the eastern part.
