If its calm enough anywhere back in Bay River is fine...and largely undeveloped and beautiful like almost all of this area. Further west is a small town, Vandermere. Not much to its waterfront area but lots of space to anchor. Bonner Bay is really a part of Bay River on the Southern shore and is good.

We have anchored many, many times in the waterway north of Hobucken in a place call Campbell Creek on the western side of the waterway. (~ A couple of miles north of Bay River) Very convenient to the ICW and a great place to raft up with another boat. Here is the position of our last stop in Campbell Creek 35°17.010'N 076°37.721'W if that helps.

Claiborne Young's cruising guide comes in very handy if your going to be in NC long!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
