Mosquito Creek – Ashepoo River Anchorage (Statute Mile 513)

On 4/30/13 as part of a South Carolina Wish List, we posed the following question:

Statute Mile 513 – anyone leave the ICW, cruise north on the Ashepoo River, and anchor or just visit Mosquito Creek? If you anchored, what were your impressions here? Did you dinghy ashore and purchase some fresh seafood at the commercial establishment?

Responses follow:

We have visited Mosquito Creek three times in the last six months, and enjoyed our time there. There is room to anchor by the last of the private docks on the creek and around the bend. Holding was good with great protection from fetch. We also spent one night at the B&B Seafood docks. They charge $25/night, for which you get a dock and access to shore. Just down the street, the SC Department of Natural Resources has a large grassy area where your dog can exercise. If you have bicycles, there is a long road though wildlife refuge areas to explore. The next road and intersection is 16 miles away. While the road has no bike lane, the traffic is so light that there are no safety issues. The only business in Bennetts Point is the B&B, which has fresh shrimp, if the shrimp boat has been out, and a few convenience store items.
