Topography and Habitat
Deadman Bay cuts a deep fjord into southern Kodiak with steep hillsides up to 3271'. Hillsides are covered with dense alder thickets interspersed with grass/salmonberry meadows. Alpine habitat starts at about 1500'. Small alpine lakes and glaciers are found in the northern part of this area. Steep narrow topography frequently channels and magnifies the wind.
Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge manages most of the land in this area, with some Akhiok-Kaguyak and private lands along the coast.
Public Use Cabins
Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge cabin and privately owned cabin at Alpine Cove.
