I haven't been in the past two years, but used to go once or twice a season. Its a long run up the creek from the bay but the pay off is worth it as you are aware if you've been by car. I especially love docking under the watchful eye of the retired veterans seated on the "Liars Bench" as they score your docking skills.
I never had any issue getting to the slips of the town dock. They run big barges right up adjacent to the town docks so I would expect no problems at all on the approach, but I suppose the slips could have silted in some. If you need fuel, its available from the dockmaster but the pumps are across from the town docks at the facility where they fuel the tugs the haul the barges of stone or whatever it is.
There is a small anchorage area just before you reach the docks, but I've never anchored there. It would be very tight for any more than 3-4 boats.
If you've tried the place by the docks, you should check out the Hotel Charlotte and/or the Irish Pub up in town depending on your mood.
