Kasilof is a small community (a "census-designated place") located on the Kenai Peninsula in southern Alaska. As of 2010, the population was 549 residents. In 1786, a stockade was built by the Russians at the site of what is now Kasilof. It was then named Saint George, most likely after one of the ships of the Russian company. An agricultural settlement of Denaina people grew up around the stockade. The area later became known as Kasilof after the Kasilof River. In 1937, a partial excavation of the area uncovered 31 well-preserved houses from the original settlement. Things to do in the area around Kasilof include world-class fishing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, wildlife watching, marine wildlife cruises - even gold panning. Several other villages and towns are located on the peninsula, including the village of Halibut Cove, home to many artists and art galleries. The Kenai Peninsula extends about 150 miles southwest from the Chugach Mountains. It's separated from the mainland on the west by Cook Inlet and on the east by Prince William Sound. The peninsula is also home to Kenai Fjords National Park and Kachemak Bay State Park.
