This particular Deep Creek (there are several on the Chesapeake Bay) breaks off of Back River on its northern shore about six mile in from the entrance. Home to a small marina and a cove with limited anchoring room, Deep Creek is most often visited by boaters looking for a quiet and undisturbed space.

Navigating the Water:

Use NOAA Chart 12278.

Although somewhat off the beaten path, Back River--and more specifically Deep Creek do have some spots for anchoring and a few select marinas along the way. Back Creek is located on the northern shore of Back River about six miles in from the entrance to Back River at Hart-Miller Island.

Once you have cleared the entrance to Back River, set a course for green daybeacon “7,” and then red daybeacon “12” near Muddy Gut. Red nun “4” marks the entrance to Deep Creek. Depths in the creek are around nine feet, but shoal quickly past the entrance. A small marina is available to the east.
