    Very nice place to anchor. Awesome views at or near sunset. Good holding in sand and mud. You are allowed to go on Dobbins Island to the poles. Otherwise it is a private island. When crowded all boats close to the shore line use a stern anchor.

    I prefer to anchor more east than shown on chart because all the trailer boats like the cove. Only wakes to speak of are ski boats. One house atop 40 foot bluff looking over the anchorage. Try to avoid holidays and weekends, too crowded.
