Yeopim Creek/Yeopim River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

For those who pilot vessels drawing 4 feet or (preferably) less, the waters of Yeopim Creek west and north of Albemarle Plantation Marina are yet another consideration. Depths of 4½ to 5 feet or better extend as far north as the correctly charted, twin 4-foot soundings, south of the point where Yeopim Creek leaves chart 12205.
You can anchor near 36 05.562 North/076 25.057 West, in about 5 feet of water. There is good protection from all but strong northern winds, and the attractive homes of Albemarle Planation peeping out from the easterly shores are a real plus. Vessels as large as 40 feet should find ample room on these waters.
Shallow-draft vessels that can safely accommodate 3 to 4 feet of water can continue upstream into another totally natural paradise of tall cypress and other trees. It doesn’t get much better than this.
