Find the best restaurants in Lake & Peninsula, Alaska
The Lake & Peninsula census area concentrates mostly around the Alaska Peninsula, covering an area of 32,922 square miles or 85,270 square kilometers. As a size, this Alaskan borough is slightly larger than the county of San Bernardino, located in California. The borough seat is at King Salmon, although this is not the largest city in the area. Concerning the largest number of inhabitants in a city, Newhalen is the most populous urban area in the borough. Even so, at the 2010 census, there were only a bit over 1,600 people living in this census area. This may be due to the fact that almost 30% of the borough's surface is covered by water.
