Assateague Island, Berlin Reviews
Fantastic Educational Center located near the entrance for the park no entry fee is required. Great displays on the culture and the geography of the area. State park has camping as well as the National Park. Ample parking for beach access for those just going for a day. For those going over the sand and OHV permit can be purchased which is good for one year. Lots of fun to get out on the sand and avoid the crowds.
We loved the rustic bit of this beach and it was so quiet and calm compared to the rest of ocean city. We came back several days in a row to enjoy the views. We did see a few horses on the drive in. The visitor center is worth the stop too. We also took a hike on the lagoon side and enjoyed that as well. Worth the $20 for the week pass. I would like to camp here in the future.
The best beach I have ever been. Miles and miles of sandy beach with almost no one. Impressive wildlife including wild horses, crabs, insects, and birds. Camping is also available. Campsites are spacious and isolated. Showers and toilets are clean. However, only cold water available in the showers. The only disadvantage of the place is bugs. So don't forget to take repellent with you.
We love coming to see the horses but if it is summer, bring tons of bug spray for mosquitoes and horse flies! The trails here are great. Did I mention the horses? This is my happy place. Check out the visitors center. Great kids programs.
We had a wonderful campsite at the park, just a few steps from the Ocean. Fall asleep listening to the waves and set your alarm to get up for sunrise. Fabulous stargazing at night, they ask you to limit the lights you put on. The bathrooms and showers were nice and well situated. And wild ponies - what could be better. Just follow the rules and treat them like wild animals.
