Game fishing in Kake

The waters surrounding Kake are rich with halibut and salmon making it a world-class destination for anglers as well as a prime spot for whale watching. More than 120 miles of logging roads head inland from the village and can be explored by mountain bike, ATV’s or on foot to access more of Kupreonof Island. Trail access from the roadway includes Big John Bay Trail, Goose Lake Trail and Cathedral Falls Trail. Bear viewing is possible along Silver Spike Road Bridge and at Gunnuck Creek Hatchery, where a large number of chum salmon return every summer.

Getting to Kake

If you love nature, the water, scenic mountains, majestic forests, long waters and want to meet our friendly people and watch possibly the most beautiful sunsets you could image, please come. We will do everything in our power to make your stay enjoyable and happy.

There are several ways to get to Kake in Alaska. Bear in mind that like most of our villages in the SE Peninsula we are surrounded by water, that’s why its so peaceful.

By air

Delta Airlines and Alaskan Airlines run regular flights from cities in the lower 48 states to Juneau.

From there you need to catch the local connection to Kake which is either by float plane or small aircraft. The flight takes about 25 minutes.

By Ferry

The Alaska Marine Highway System operates regular ferry services to Kake from Juneau, Prince Rupert in Canada and Dillingham in Washington.

An alternate is to fly to Juneau and then take the ferry to Kake.

By cruise line

During summer literally dozens of cruise ships cruise to Alaska and many will allow you to book a passage to alight at one of their ports of call from where you can either take the ferry or commuter airline to Kake.

Kake Dog Salmon Festival

Sadly due to the unforeseen circumstances going on with COVID-19 there will be no Dog salmon festival this year. This would have been the 26th annual event that began 1994, put on by Kake Tribal Heritage Foundation. We are sad to announce this, but the foundation believe it is in the best interest of the people and community to not hold one this year! Looking forward to next year. Stay safe!!

The Kake Dog Salmon Festival is one of many festivals that happen throughout the summer season but we are proud to say that it is the only Native Festival in Southeast Alaska . It is a fun filled event that features various native races with cash prizes, competitions, picnic food, dancing and music. The main attraction of the day is an exciting canoe race called “The Challenge of Chums”

Since the fisheries opened in 1993 the Kake Dog Salmon festival was created to celebrate the salmon catch and achievement of production goals. The event was formalized with the “First Annual Kake Dog Salmon Festival” on the last Saturday of July 1995. The Alaska Marine highway brought visitors for the day to the village of Kake to share our beautiful community with friedns and family, they were greeted by the Keex Kwaan dancers. This last year was the 25th annual Dog Salmon festival and was held on July 27th 2019. With our community faced with a challenging economic phase, like the rest of Southeast Alaska, we feel that it is important to continue the Dog Salmon Festival tradition as it brings the community together.

Please join us! We look forward to seeing you all in July 2020.
