Walburg Creek Anchorage (Statute Mile 619)
Walburg Creek cuts into the western banks of St. Catherines Island, immediately south of Georgia's St. Catherines Sound. It is a superb anchorage, but it is best entered from this northern mouth, which makes into the sound, and does not directly intersect the AICW. An earlier report here on the Net's "Georgia" page reported a missing marker near the intersection of Walburg Creek and St. Caterines Sound, so proceed with caution.
Some cruisers make use of the southern entrance to Walburg Creek, which makes into the AICW near marker #124. We have always found this portion of Walburg Creek to be rather shallow!
We've been anchored in beautiful Walburg Creek, GA the last few days, enjoying a wonderful full Thanksgiving dinner; one of those times we really appreciate our energy inefficient galley with full sized kitchen appliances. Gorgeous crisp fall weather enabled fun dinghy exploration. Took the outside route here from Thunderbolt via Wassaw and St. Catherine's Sounds. This a quick and pretty passage we tried for the first time in the spring on the way up. Highly recommended as a change of pace, the islands are very pretty too.

We also anchored in Walburg Creek in the Spring of 08. What a beautifulplace. Your post brought back a vivid memory of beautiful marshland and fast moving currents. Just set the hook and watch your speed over water
