Adak is the name of both an island and a city, located on the far western end of the Andreanof Islands group of the Aleutian Islands. Aduk is the southernmost town in Alaska. As of the 2010 census, the population was 326 residents. Adak Island is 274.6 square miles and the 25th largest island in the United States. The highest point is Mt. Moffett, near the northwest end of the island, at an elevation of 3,924 feet. The city of Adak was formerly known as Adak Station, the former location of the Adak Army Base and Adak Naval Operating Base. During World War II, it was one of the most populated of the Aleutian Islands. Today, Adak is quiet and secluded. Camping is allowed on the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge Lands, but it's not recommended due to the harsh climate. Winds on Adak are often unpredictable and can exceed 100 knots or more. The island has only 16 miles of paved and gravel roads that can be explored on foot, bicycle or truck. There is one vehicle rental business in Adak that rents trucks for exploring. Fishing and hunting are popular on Adak Island, especially for caribou. Most of the caribou are on the south end of the island, and there are two boat charter services on the island that will take you there. All hunters must possess an Alaska state hunting license and a harvest ticket for each animal taken. Services are few on the island, but there is a sports bar and grill, a liquor store and a general store.
