    Next stop was for a night at Peck’s Lake. MM992 No dredge in sight! South of tide station is very shallow. We went in at Green and stayed off the tide station a few hundred yards in 7-9 ft of water. Nice and quite on a Friday night. Very narrow beach to walk dog. Short walk across to the real beach where dogs are not allowed.
    I ran aground here 15 years ago, anchored in 6-7 ft and woke up on a sand bar the next AM. Called Boat US and was off in a few. If you have not run aground you have not cruised much.

    We turned out of the channel about 50 yards south of G19 but could not bear the 060M course to the structure with the danger sign due to anchored boats. Instead we headed 030 then 050 and ran all the way to shore. With dead low at +.3 feet we never saw less than 10 feet depth and the least was just after we left the channel.
    At low water the shoal to the south is clearly visible. We see no signs of a shoal to the north in this lake but have not investigated further.

    Just passed the Peck Lake anchorage in the ICW, Statue Mile 992, and observed no dredging equipment. Green marker #19 has been replaced with a can, but all else looks normal.
    There was one boat anchored, when there are normally a dozen, so thought I should report the lack of equipment as previously reported. Is it officially open now?

    We passed Peck Lake SM 992 this morning, 17 Nov., and it appears that this is no longer a viable anchorage. Secured just east of the main ICW channel, we observed one tug, two barges, a dredge or pump barge, a dormitory barge, a floating, lighted pipeline extending from the dredge to the shore, and the lagoon populated with many white stakes. There were no other vessels there. This might be a staging area for the dredging of St. Lucie inlet.

    As of 11/14/2013, Peck Lake is ABSOLUTELY UNUSABLE by pleasure craft for anchorage. There is dredging equipment on station in Peck Lake, apparently related to dredging at the St. Lucie Inlet. The construction company has placed a network of stakes completely throughout Peck Lake, making it unusable by anything other than kayaks and canoes. It seems completely unnecessary to confiscate all that space, but they did it.

    We’ve anchored at Peck Lake with our two labradors, and they have enjoyed running on the beach on the Atlantic side. Never saw any signs saying “no dogs allowed”

    From just south of marker 19 go directly toward the tide station ( platform). Anchorage is good on both sides of that line. Don’t go more than 150 yards to the south of that line. Depths run 6 to 8 feet.

    Leave ICW immediately south of G19. Head toward weather station on timber structure just off beach. As you get in to deeper water, head north again until water begins to shallow. Circle back to the south and anchor. There is lots of room, and holding is good. No problem with four foot draft.
    Dogs ARE allowed on the ICW side of the park. They are not allowed east of the dune line. I contacted the park superintendent, and he confirmed this in an email to me. We were there with our dog on January 11, 2013

    We are currently anchored in Peck Lake with winds up to 20 knots and good holding. The beach is really nice but cruiser’s with pets should know no dogs allowed. There are a lot of no seeums even with the wind at dusk and dawn.

    I’ve been here several times, but it would be most helpful to know the exact entry point off the ICW to get into this anchorage. I’ve always depended on the kindness of those in this anchorage before me to guide me in due to the challenge of finding the ‘sweet spot’ to get over that bar…and passed it by on those occasions when some braver soul had not already ‘done the deed’ before me. Hints anyone?

    5 miles or so south of the St.Lucie inlet the ICW widens to a decent anchorage. It is undeveloped except for a dinghy dock. 100 yds beyond the dock is a very nice beach ( Jonathan Dickenson State Park)

    We anchored at Peck Lake 5/3/11. We entered just south of Green 19 and saw nothing less than 13 feet. Head straight to the sign on the shore. We then anchored in 9 feet. Good holding. No bugs and no wind. It can be bouncy from the ICW. A great spot from which to head either north towards Vero or south to West Palm.

    June 29, 2010 ~ Had the misfortune of running aground just North of the deep water area that stretches from marker 19 to the tide tower close to the Eastern shore. I wasn’t paying attention, instead, raising the main to sail out on a beautiful breeze. For future reference, stay to the North of the line between these two markers. You should have deep water as far North as 40 yards (I must have been about 50 yards or so) from this line as close as 50 yards from shore. Avoid the area to the South of this line.

    We’re anchored in Peck Lake with friends and loving life. We came in at dead low tide turning east just south of Green 19. We headed toward the tower and found good water (6+’) all the way in to deeper water. There’s a nice park on the ocean just a dink ride and short walk away. It’s protected and there isn’t much boat traffic mid week. We plan to stay for a few days.

    We have anchored many times in Peck Lake on trips up/down the ICW. We have always found a stop there to be pleasant with just two possible problems. If the wind falls during the late afternoon/night it can get downright buggy there. The wakes of the passing boats can be an annoyance. Other than that it is a delightful anchorage.

    We anchored at Peck Lake last night with 15-20 k wind from the NW. It was a little noisy with waves hitting the hull but not enough to keep us awake. This is the third or fourth time we have stayed here and only once was the weather such that we felt like walking the beach which is a beautiful undeveloped stretch. There is room for a number of boats (there were six last night). We had 7.4 ft at low tide at N27 06 85. W080 08 58. There was over thirteen feet a little farther to the north. There are wakes from the ICW during the day.

    If you can comfortably anchor, I suggest Peck Lake, just a mile south of the St Lucie River ICW junction….Good holding, anchor 100 yards off a nice state park beach, swim ashore, nice and quiet weeknights, busy on weekends –as good as an RV on the beach.
