in Yukon-Kuskokwim Portage, between Arhymot and Kulik Lakes, 26 mi. SE of Russian Mission, Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta
Eskimo name recorded in 1842-44, as "Ozero Kuka-Klik," by Lieutenant L. A. Zagoskin, Imperial Russian Navy (IRN). Although it is shown as a large lake on Kuskokwim-Yukon Portage, its exact identity has not been determined. R. H. Sargent, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), who traversed the portage in 1916, placed the name on the lake immediately south of Kulik Lake, a location verified by U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey (USC&GS) in 1949. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in 1952, applied the name as given above. The Eskimo name, with various spellings, may represent two names for this feature, or confusion in the application of names to the "portage lakes." Captain R. W. Raymond, USA, recorded "Ookakhl" and "Oakakhl," in 1869, and W. S. Post, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), called it "Oknakluk" in 1898.
