With 70′ LOA and 6+ draft, i cant’ get in such a creek but I did anchor just outside the creek (between the 11 and 10′ marks on the chart) and found good holding. Good protection from the SE winds that made me leave Bellhaven… Wakes and traffic from the ICW where not an issue (may 09). May want to add that as an alternative to the creek.
