The administrative centre is Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The okrugretains the status of an administrative division of the krai under the name of Koryak Okrug.
The krai will exist in the transitional state until the the krai's legislative body (
Legislative Assembly of Kamchatka Krai) is formed—or until December 31, 2008, whichever comes first. During the transitional period, the Council of People's Deputies of the former oblast and the Duma of the okrug would legislate in the krai.

Kamchatka Peninsula. The krai is a part of the country's Far Eastern Federal District.
