Assateague Island Reviews & Ratings
By far our favorite beach in Maryland! We’ve been going for years! Does get full over holiday weekends. But generally you can easily find a nice spot. The showers and bathrooms are very much appreciated! We buy an annual pass every year since we are down most of the summer.
My wife and I love Assateague Island! The experience is just unequivocal. Sunshine, sand, and horses makes for a perfect day. The Visitor Center staff is also very enthusiastic, very professional. Such gracious hostesses. Special praise to Miss Karen, Park Ranger. I can hardly wait to return! Thank you!
Beautiful, beautiful! My first visit here. The wild horses were out doing their thing. The weather was perfect and the beach was mostly empty. The atmosphere was much calmer than that of ocean city and so was the water. Can't wait to return.
Absolutely gorgeous, and so enjoyable to camp in the sand and sleep to the sound of the ocean. We didn't see any ponies until we left, but my last trip they woke us up with the sound of them rooting for food around our tents. You never know where they will pop up!
I went here for the Blueberry Festival, but enjoyed much more. On my way to the beach, i saw the ponies grazing in the field. I had a delicious take out meal at Captain Zack's twice. They were very helpful & the food was delicious! The island people have a laid back, caring attitude. This is a beautiful place to be.
