    We anchored here on 3/2/21. It was tight with 20 other boats in the anchorage. We were in 8 to 10 feet with only 50 feet of rode out. There are red buoy markers to delineate the boundaries of the anchorage. I'm not sure that gets policed well since at first we were outside the lines, but the wind changed. Good holding in mud. Dinghy out under the low bridge of the canal at the SW corner of Lake Sylvia. We stopped at Cox Landing public ramp to dump garbage and then enjoyed dinner at the Raw Bar at the west end of the canal (across ICW). Friendly staff at Lauderdale Marina where we purchased ice.

    Calm most of the time. Long dinghy ride will bring you to New River with free dinghy docks.

    Ed Note: New River Downtown Docks.
