Welcome to Kokhanok
This fishing village was first listed in the U.S. Census in 1890 by A.B. Schanz. The community was relocated to higher ground a few years ago when the rising level of Iliamna Lake threatened several community buildings.
The village has a mixed Alaska Native population, primarily Alutiiq and Yup'ik. Subsistence activities are the focal point of the culture and lifestyle.
Kokhanok is accessible by air and water. There is a state-owned gravel airstrip and a seaplane base. Residents can generally travel to Iliamna and Anchorage through scheduled air service. Local travel is done primarily by ATV, skiff, or snowmobile.
