  • 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.

  • We had a great time at this beach. It is just below Ocean City. Waves are a little gentler here than Ocean City Beach because the water is shallower least where we were swimming. There were lifeguards and others enjoying the surf. It was not crowded but certainly not remote or desolate. Take a picnic. Showers and restrooms are available.

  • Silky sand, clear water (as clear as you can get on the eastern sea board), clean beach. Park in the lot and the beach is right there, no hauling your stuff for blocks. Bike riding trails are awesome, flat and scenic. Both visitors centers are informative and educational. Lots of birds for birdwatching and of course the ponies, too. I love this park

  • Assateague Island state campground is a special place to visit and stay a while. The white sand beaches and warm summer ocean are wonderful, but, the best part of the island are the wild horses. It was such fun and a great surprise to see a couple horses walk out from behind our camper and graze beside us while we were outside eating lunch. The downside of the campground is that there are very few sites with electricity or water. It is rustic but we'll worth any inconvenience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
