Harrison Lagoon, Prince William Sound

See more pictures of Harrison Lagoon here:

Harrison Lagoon is about 0.5 mile (800 m) across, located on the west side of Port Wells, 22 miles (35.5 km) northeast of Whittier, Alaska. The local name was first reported in 1916 by J.W. Bagley of the U.S. Geological Survey.

A public use cabin is located in Harrison Lagoon, one of 21 public use cabins in Prince William Sound. The cabin is tucked into a stand of conifer trees on a gravel spit. One side faces Port Wells, and the other faces the lagoon. The lagoon itself is surrounded by rocky shoreline and dense evergreen forest, with views of distant snow-capped mountains. 

Black bears, Sitka black-tailed deer and bald eagles make their home here. The lagoon and Port Wells support many seabirds, Dall's and harbor porpoises, harbor seals, sea otter and some sea lions frequent the area. Orcas and humpback whales also may be seen in Port Wells.
