The anchorage behind Goat Island is one of several really good anchor down spots along the course of the Pasquotank River/AICW Alternate Dismal Swamp Canal Route, between the South Mills Lock and Elizabeth City. The Goat Island anchorage probably boasts the best combination of depths and good holding ground of all these overnight havens.
Goat Island is a great spot. We liveaboard at Lambs Marina and frequently go anchor out for a weekend at the island. Very peaceful, save for the occasional PWC or powerboaters blasting by.
