Bath Creek Anchorage lies on the centerline of Bath Creek, north of marker #4 and south of the the fixed, 13-foot Bath Creek Bridge in Bath, NC. Bath Creek itself cuts into the southern shores of the Pamlico River, between the AICW and Washington, NC.
This is the very first we have heard about any sort of anchorage time restriction on these waters, or most any other North Carolina waters for that matter. If ANYONE has more info on this time limit, PLEASE click the “Comment on This Posting/Marina/Anchorage/Bridge” link below, and share your information
I was told that there is a town ordinance prohibiting anchoring longer than one week in Bath Creek. I left my boat on the hook there for two weeks and was threatened with a “violation” by some town official. Paul Minor at Bath Creek Marina was nice enough to come out and warn me.
Is this even legal??? Never heard of this before.
