Population 479 -- Located near the confluence of the Kuskokwim and Takotna Rivers, this thriving community has two stores, a bar and a restaurant. It is the last chance to buy aviation gas, except at Galena, until you reach the coast at Unalakleet. Lodging is also available with advance booking. Iditarod sponsor, PenAir awarded their first “Spirit of the Iditarod” award to the first musher into McGrath in 2001.
