Report on Upper Goose Creek Anchorage on the Pamlico River, 17 Miles off the AICW

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 07-22-2011

Upper Goose Creek Anchorage lies due north of Pamlico River’s, Blounts Bay marker #8. Cruisers’ Net does not recommend that cruising size craft enter this creek. It has an unmarked shoal surrounding the entrance. Only adventurous captains using a GPS chartplotter should attempt entrance and ONLY then if they are willing to risk finding the bottom! Obviously Skipper Keith is a risk-taker who loves to explore. (See Swanquarter posting.) Do not confuse this Upper Goose Creek with the “Upper Goose Creek Anchorage” off the Neuse River as found in our NC Anchorage Directory.

I just took my 4 1/2 foot draft sailboat well up into Goose Creek State Park (between Bath and Washington) and never touched bottom even with the wind tide about 1 foot low. I anchored near a primitive campground which has a small dock that I could row to for water and a bathroom. It was a GREAT spot.
Y’all take care and thanks for the great website.
