Pedro Bay

 

Pedro Bay is located at the northeast end of Iliamna Lake, at the head of Pedro Bay, 176 air miles southwest of Anchorage on the Alaska Peninsula. It lies at approximately 59░ 47' N Latitude, 154░ 06' W Longitude (Sec. 33, T004S, R028W, Seward Meridian). The community is located in the Iliamna Recording District. The area encompasses 18 sq. miles of land and 9 sq. miles of water.

The Dena'ina Indians have occupied this area historically. The Dena'ina warred with Russian fur traders over trade practices in the early 1800s. The community was named for a man known as "Old Pedro," who lived in this area in the early 1900s. A post office was established in the village in 1936.
