Description

This is the site of the Battle of Sitka in 1804, which was the last large conflict between Europeans and the Alaskan Natives. Besides walking the large park itself (which is covered by temperate rainforest . . . surprisingly, Alaska has rainforests!), the history buff will want to explore the Tlingit Fort.

Basic Directions

Sitka National Historical Park is located in downtown Sitka, Alaska. Sitka is situated on Baranof Island on the outer coast of Alaska’‘s Inside Passage. No roads reach the city from the mainland; Sitka can be reached only by air or sea. Visitors can travel to Sitka by scheduled and charter air services, ferry, and cruise ships.

Air
Daily jet service is available from Seattle, Anchorage, and Juneau.

Air taxi companies fly a network of routes that link Sitka to Juneau, Haines, Skagway, and other southeast Alaska towns.

Ferry
Sitka is a port of call for passenger ferries on the Alaska Marine Highway System.

Cruise Ships
Many cruise ships schedule a stop in Sitka on their Inside Passage itineraries.


Getting Around
Once in Sitka, visitors without their own vehicles can travel to the park by foot, rental car, taxi, bus, or bicycle. The downtown area is not very large, and most points of interest are within walking distance of each other.

The park Visitor Center is located at the east end of Lincoln Street, approximately one-fourth mile from downtown Sitka. The Visitor Center and Russian Bishop’‘s House are located about a ten minute walk apart in this essentially urban park. The park map provides a detailed view of both facilities and the park trails.
