Visiting Bath, NC (Pamlico River)

Posted by Claiborne Young | Posted on 07-23-2009

On 7/23/09, as part of a “North Carolina Wish List,” I posed the following question:

28. Farther up the Pamlico River, Bath Creek cuts into the northern banks. This well marked body of water leads to Bath, officially North Carolina’s oldest incorporated town. Here, you can tie up to free state docks, or a nice, smaller private marina. Who has visited Bath in the last several years? Where do you berth? Did you find anyplace to eat ashore in Bath?

Responses follow:

Dock was full so attempted to anchor, bottom must be very soft. Finally set Fortress after Delta and SuperMax kept sliding along.

We docked at state dock during election last November during nor’easter, Bath is a lovely town. There’s a pizza place very nearby and it was tasty. They also had some cheese biscuits for breakfast, but otherwise not many choices. Rarely is there better food than can be found in this farmer’s galley, though.

We have been to Bath 6 times in the last year and I’m going back next week.  It is my favorite place in NC.  Edenton is a close second.  We’ve used the town dock and anchored out.  My blood pressure drops 40 points as soon as my feet hit shore.  This town is so perfect. I nice restaurant called Blackbeards is mostly Italian stuff.  And ice cream!  Very good food.

Bath Creek – delightful. And the free dock excellent. Nothing much there however in terms of stores except one pizza restaurant – which is quite good however. I hear that Fortune 500 magazine recommended Bath as one of the top ten places in America to build a multi million dollar home……… Grocery stores etc too far away for boaters
Best wishes
