On 4/30/13, as part of a South Carolina Wish List, we posed the following question:
Statute Mile 487.5 – anyone anchored on Church Creek, near AICW marker #77? What were your overall impressions? Did you anchor abeam of the historic homeplace visible on the southern banks?
One of our favorites!
Anchored there 4/24/13. Anchored just before New Cut Landing. Came in near low tide. Had 7 feet. Considered better than average anchorage but conditions were quiet.
Anchored here 4/30/13; still the excellent anchorage it has been over the past years.
Regarding Church Creek. If traveling South make sure you go way beyond the marker in the middle of the ICW. Cutting short heading into Church Creek will put you aground. Plenty of water otherwise. Anchoring will get you about 12 to 18 feet of water most times.
