The borough had a population of 2,369 at the 2010 census.
Where to go
Anan Bear and Wildlife Observatory - Located at the south end of Wrangell Island is an ancient Tlingit fishing site called the Anan Creek. The creek attracts numerous black and brown bears due to the abundance of salmon jumping up the river, the largest pink salmon run in Southeast Alaska. In order for guests to be able to witness this wonderful feat, the US Forest Service established an enclosed and partially covered deck area. The observatory allows visitors to watch the bears and the salmon up close without harming either party.
Petroglyph Beach State Historic Park - The Petroglyph Beach State Historic Site is a beach and public historical site in Alaska. It contains the highest concentration of Native American petroglyphs in the country's south-eastern region. The site is some 8,000 years old and at least 40 petroglyphs have been discovered on its boulders and bedrock outcrops. There is a boardwalk to a deck overlooking the beach, the Stikine River, and Zimovia Straits. Visitors may take photos of the petroglyphs, but are asked to step lightly and are forbidden to rub the original petroglyphs (the replicas can be touched) in order to prevent accelerated deterioration.
Muskeg Meadows Golf Course - Wrangell's golf course is a nine-hole course with a 250-yard driving range. There are rather unusual hazards in the course, one of which was the reason for the Raven Rule; the rule states that a ball stolen by a raven at any point throughout the round may be replaced with no penalty, as long as there is a witness.
Eastern Passage Paddle Craft Trail - Outdoorsy types who love to go hiking can check out the six-foot wide gravel Eastern Passage Paddle Craft Trail which offers kayak and canoe portage. The trail extends from the trailhead at 3.5-mile Ishiyama Drive (Spur Road) to the shoreline along the Eastern Passage. Other notable trails in Wrangell are Mt. Dewey Trail, Rainbow Falls Trail, and Volunteer Loop Trail.
