Many guides do tell you about anchorages.
Look for the ones that are more book like. What is your draft? That is a controling issue especially in areas with tides. Weekends can be a problem because popular areas are crowded so you may have to get there a bit early. But there is a lot of protected water if you know where to find it. I usually set off in the morning with a couple places in mind. Not advisable to start thinking about it at 5 pm.
Another piece of advice - chain. more is better. I have an all chain rode, but it''s the first 25 - 30 feet that really matter.
