Steamboat Creek Anchorage (off the AICW on North Edisto River, near St. M. 496.5)

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

Statute Mile 496.5 – anyone anchor on either Steamboat Creek, or Westbank Creek, south of the AICW’s entrance into the North Edistor, via Dawho River? Were you able to sight any of the nearby historic plantation houses from your anchorage? What depths did you discover?

Responses follow:

Anchored there [Steamboat Creek] 4 times in the last 2 years near the gazebo marking the landing. This is a private farm and I got run off by the caretaker while taking my dog for a walk.
Depths run 20 to 25 ft. near the dock. Last time I had to anchor near the eastern shore of the creek to try to get in the lee of the trees. Saw two bald eagles. The caretaker said there was a big nest nearby.
The creek runs some 3 miles long and there are several homes on up in it. There is a public dock/ ramp just south of the Steamboat gazebo and you can go ashore to walk your dogs. Good anchorage, plenty of water and swing room.
