Yes, anchored in the basin, at lower tide it was 6.5' going in on the right side as you enter. But in basin anchored in 11'.

Re: Chesapeake City Maryland depths

We were there 2 years ago this time, and we were pushing through 'mud' at 5'6" draft on the way out the following morning (low tide). We timed the current correctly but did not know we'd touch bottom at the entrance/exit. As mentioned you have to stay close to the side (right on the way in, left on the way out). Some folks there actually told us the opposite and we nearly ran aground, backing up swiftly as we 'felt' and saw the depth decreasing alarmingly nearer to the right side on the way out.

The basin was plenty of water to anchor.

Last year we skipped Chesapeake City...
