Town Creek is the home to the town of Oxford (yes, after its English namesake), a robust fishing and recreational boating community on Marylands middle Eastern Shore. Oxford is home to several large and well-equipped marinas and marine repair facilities, and its small-town feel makes it a popular destination and stopover point for those exploring the outer reaches of the Choptank River.
Use NOAA Chart 12266.
The town of Oxford and Town Creek are located up the fittingly English sounding Tred Avon River, which bends north off of the Choptank River about eight miles in from the mouth.
The Choptank River LIght (flashing white every four seconds) is situated two miles south of Benoni Point and is the main beacon for the mouth of the Tred Avon River. Once you have cleared this light, you will set a course for flashing red buoy 2, which is located 2.5 miles north of the Choptank River Light past Bachelor Point.
The mouth of Town Creek is marked with flashing red 2 and flashing green 3. Town Creek has a controlling depth of 5.5 feet at mean low water from the mouth up to its head.
