Pedro Bay

Pedro Bay (P-droh) is located on the Alaska Peninsula, at the head of Pedro Bay and the east end of Iliamna Lake. Historically, the Dena’ina Indians have occupied this area. 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.
