Baranof Lake is a glacially-fed, horseshoe-shaped lake on the eastern side of Baranof Island, in Alaska. Baranof Lake borders the community of Baranof Warm Springs and also has a Forest Service cabin on the northwestern end of the lake. Baranof River flows into the lake's western end and exits on the eastern end in rapids and a waterfall.
Baranof Lake was likely named for the community of Baranof Warm Springs.
Baranof Warm Springs is a very small community, having only one year round resident. However, there are around 15 seasonal homes. The community lies inside the jurisdiction of the City and Borough of Sitka, but there are only two tax-paying commercial enterprises, the Baranof General Store and the Baranof Wilderness Lodge and Resort. The city, in return, maintains a boardwalk which serves as the main thoroughfare as well as a dock for transient vessels. The community pools money together to pay for a seasonal (winter) caretaker for seasonally-inhabited residences, the city-owned picnic shelter (possible shelter for those needing it), the public bath house (which features three separate tubs), and the communal warm springs pools. Another caretaker is hired to tend to the Baranof Lodge from October 1 to May 1 when the owners of the Lodge return.
