One of our favorites is Little Bay just before the entry to Antipoison Creek, though it can get crowded during the day in good weather. Still a very nice anchorage.

Truthfully, if there is any inconvenience, if it's not on the way to or from someplace, if there is any tricky piloting or any mystery, that will keep the crowds away.

You guys really know how to ruin a good spot quickly....
The best anchorages are the ones I'm the only boat in, and yes I've been in the majority of the ones mentioned in this thread, but there's a few not mentioned and I'm not telling

My lips are sealed
It used to be quieter years ago but yes. At one time it was Winchester Farms...a hunting area but it was pretty lovely as long as they were not shootin'

Favs to drop anchor (quiet is our goal here)
WOW, there are so many here we like but this would be my selection....
10. End of the West Branch of Langford Creek by Chesapeake Farms
9. Grove Creek off the Chester, just to say we got in there for the gunkholer in us.
8. Coan River off the Potomac
7. Pitman Cove, Indian Creek
6. St. Mary's City
5. Trippe Creek, Choptank River
4. La Trappe Creek, Choptank River
3. Behind Cason Point, Hudson Creek on the Little Choptank
2. Dividing Creek, Wye River
1. Queenstown, Chester River
Now if you wanted to see the spots for action, that I guess, would have to be another thread.

While nearly every place I've yet anchored is probably covered in the guidebooks, I will say for seclusion and peacefulness, any place south of Point Lookout and north of York River wins for those of us doing most of our sailing on weekends.
Yes, there are many great destinations in the mid-bay, but there are far more powerboat wakes up here to upset things (Eastern Bay for example) and you are highly unlikely to have an anchorage to yourself or shared with one or two other boats which was common when we were sailing out of Deltaville. As an example, I counted over 50 boats anchored/rafted in Shaw Bay on a non-holiday weekend. Fishing Bay in Deltaville is similiar in size and was considered crowded if there were a dozen boats.
I envy those of you in the mid-bay that are able to get in some overnights during the week where there are less wakes to contend with and fewer boats in the anchorages, but I really envy the folks that are able be close to their boats and sail out of the Middle Peninusla area.

Some of my favorite anchorages are where I can get off the boat and hike or jog through the woods. Several places come to mind.
1. Dividing Creek off the Wye
2. Mill Creek off the Patuxent River just past the bridge and Point Patience
3. But my favorite is Horseshoe Bend on the St Mary's River where not only there is ample room to jog on the trails, but to visit an historic site like a mini Williamsburg...plus the college there has a great restaurant
Now if someone can give some good anchorages on the Pamlico Sound that would be great since we're moving the boat down there next spring.
