Island/Roanoke River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

West of Plymouth, the Roanoke is eventually bisected by a long, undeveloped, oval-shaped island. The main channel borders the island’s southern quarter and soon meets up with a large pulp mill. The northern cut holds 6- to 8-foot depths behind the island and is an excellent spot to drop the hook, provided you can stand the pulp and paper smell. There is enough swinging room for a 34-footer. Protection should be adequate for all winds short of a full gale.
You can dinghy ashore by taking your dink back downstream to the new Plymouth City Marina, which will be quite obvious on the upstream side of the Plymouth downtown waterfront. Here you should be able to find a spot to tie off while visiting downtown Plymouth.
The downtown business district new features two restaurants and an interesting museum. It is a LONG walk to Highway 64 where you will discover supermarkets and drug stores.
