        Anchored here last week to await next day high tide at Amelia River “1″
        Entered at half tide (range was 7.1 ft) with 5.5 ft draft strongly favoring R”36″ and going mid-creek after that to the southern spot. Lowest reading was 12 feet (~8.5 ft at low water). Water ebb/flood out/in western leg did not come beyond center line of lower creek so we favored eastern side when anchoring. Otherwise it would be a bit swirly.
        Speedboat traffic short cutting the oxbow makes it rolly here. Definitely need a low level anchor light that illuminates the boat — background lights in the trees on Amelia City side confuse the picture.

        Anchored here on 4/13/13. Entered and exited by the south end. Came in near low tide and bounced twice. Have anchored here last year also and find holding is good. Current is not too bad and protection is good. Waited in morning for rising tide, no problem leaving. Would rate it a 3 because of the problems entering at a lower tide. s/v Skye

        We anchored here recently and found the water deep and holding good. Our spade dug in instantly.

        Our 2009 copy of Skipper Bob’s Guide to Anchorages warns not to enter or leave through the northern end of the anchorage but we found good water in the center when we left northbound.

        Stayed here the night of 5-3-10
        We entered from the southern end at low tide lowest we saw was 5.5 ft Holding was good and had plenty of swing room for our 55′ fdmy
        The dolphins kept us company in the evening and in the morning there was a bald eagle standing on the shoreline.
        We would anchor here again.
