Upstream Scuppernong River Anchorage – Claiborne’s Review

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 08-04-2012

Early explorers were so enchanted with the beauty of this river that they named it “Hearts Delight.” This lovely body of water is narrower than its sister streams to the north and is lined by heavily wooded shores. Old, gnarled cypress trees with their trailing beards of gray moss majestically guard the banks. Here and there, a few picturesque homes break the landscape.
Tradition claims that the river is the birthplace of the Scuppernong grape. Early visitors are said to have carried clippings of the vine back to Roanoke Island, from which grew the “Mother Vineyard.”
The Scuppernong River offers visiting cruisers many overnight anchorages. This is the sort of water where captains can almost pick a spot at will.
Those who like to pitch the hook just a bit closer to civilization and within easy dinghy docking distance, might try the 8- to 9-foot waters abutting the Scuppernong River’s northeastern banks just upstream of marker #10 (near 35 55.445 North/076 15.632 West). This anchorage lies within sight of the Columbia waterfront and its free city docks and is protected enough for heavy weather.
