Welcome to Chignik Lake!
The present population traces its roots from the Alutiiq near Illnik and the old village of Kanatag near Becharof Lake. The community was the winter residence of a single family in 1903. Other families moved from surrounding communities in the early 1950s when a school was built.
Chignik Lake is a predominantly Alutiiq fishing village.
«“I love Chignik Lake because it is quiet, peaceful, and I get to see the lake and mountains all the time. You never know when it’s a Kodak moment as the bears love to go in front of my place . And of course, I love to teach my kids and grandkids subs» -Nana Kalmakoff, Chignik Lake, Alaska
