Assateague Island, Berlin Reviews - Write a Review
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.
A little touristy because of the wild horses but still a great place to visit. If you have children you'll have a great time with all the horses roaming around. There is plenty of camping but reserve early. Since there are no stores local bring whatever you need with you. Camping there is awesome but make sure you obey the rules especially about leaving food at the campsite. Leave it in your car because the horses will show up and take the food right off your table. They even drank my coffee and ate my bag of Pirates Booty!
Wonderful experience! It was quiet, clean, and everything We expected. No hookups, just fire ring, a flat pad, and picnic table. Don't speed on the roads! Horses were everywhere and quite indifferent to our presence. Fishing third week of October was poor but oh well, I got great pics of dawn on the beach. Will be going again! Book early!
It was a beautiful park. I especially enjoyed the ranger led programs which were offered for free! Ranger Matt did a wonderful job teaching participants how to surf fish, crab and clam. The children loved his enthusiasm and he provided a great experience for visitors of all ages! The marsh trail was also quite amazing. The only draw back to the park, for myself, was the lack of hot showers but you can purchase a day pass at the state park if would like. They also have great programs. I suggest combining the opportunities provided by both parks for a great vacation. The park definitely provides a wonderful opportunity to explore all that is offered by the island - great beaches, educational programs, trails and bike paths!
Clean beach with ample parking plus showers and restrooms. Had fun finding seashells. Also drove a beautiful 3 mile wildlife loop and toured the Assateague Lighthouse. No elevator so you have to hike up 175 stairs but the view at the top is breath-taking. Bring your own snacks and drinks as there is none available on the island. Costs $20 per car for 7 day pass with unlimited in/out privileges. We went to see the ponies in corral the day before the pony swim. Normally they roam wild on the island and can be seen from the wildlife loop. Definitely recommend for family vacation stop.
