Keel Creek/Chowan River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Keel Creek opens its broad mouth on the Chowan’s western banks north-northwest of marker #7. This stream boasts fair anchorage for craft as large as 36 feet that draw 3½ feet or less. The creek’s mouth is surrounded by numerous snags, making entry hazardous in high winds or low light. Otherwise, the stream holds 5-foot minimum depths and affords good protection from all winds. Both shores are wooded and virtually untouched.
Probably the best spot to anchor is in the body of the creek’s first sharp jog to port. Consider dropping the hook here for excellent protection.
