    This is a nice place to anchor overnight. The drawback is that there is no access to groceries, fuel, pump-out and water. The good news is that Ingram Bay Marina is very close (it shares the same entrance marker 2MC as Mill Creek, 6ft+ MLW. They have a courtesy car available for overnight guests to drive to town for food, hardware etc... Best fuel prices on the bay! It was worth a nights stay for the Wifi and other perks and of course a long hot shower was nice too!

    The anchorage is totally protected. The bottom is thick mud which you'll find on your anchor in the morning. When I weighed anchor, it was just a round ball of mud. I have a washdown pump at the bow for just such an occasion and it did the job. There is pet relief on the north shore by a 10 ft high clift with a sandy beach; just pick up after use. The sunsets are beautiful here, but there's nothing nearby for supplies.

    Very peaceful and quiet anchorage. Weathered 50 kt Tstorm so protection and holding earned their 5 stars.

    Very scenic spot, great for paddle boarding and dinghy exploration. When we visited August 2016, Jacey Vineyards winery was only open on Saturdays. There are a few beaches and coves to land the dinghy for dog walks.
