The area is stunning with a really nice drive from Ocean City to the Park. We stayed on the Ocean Side Walk In Site 67. The area was nice with shrubbery around us and lots of space between sites. Fire pit was large and had a double walled ring around it with a flip down grate if one chooses to... More

We've gone here several times. Love to see the horses in the wild. Park Rangers keep you safe. There is a small admission fee but, if you check to see what dates the National Parks have free admission, I'd suggest to go then if you can.

Beautiful beach! No ugly hotels or boardwalks marring the view of the white sand and blue water. It does get very crowded during peak season. It's worth it though. The waves are fun to play in, and the water is the perfect temperature. If you are lucky, you might even see a wild pony or too!

I LOVED this beach, even better than the ocean city beach. A tip for you is you have a choice to go to the state park or the national park. We chose the national park, for a 1 time fee of $15.00 we had access to the beach for a week. If you choose the state park, it's $5.00 per... More

Our main goal was to see horses. Within two minutes of getting there we'd seen horses from a distance so I was already happy. We'd used Mrs Js sr lifetime national parks pass to get in so that pass has saved us lots. We drove around the park which is huge and wild . We saw lots of horses15' keep... More

If I was a one day visitor, Id give this place five star. Assategue maybe one of the best beaches in America--so far for me, I love the beach. But I went here for camping, in July, 3rd week. So now, lets talk about my camping experience. Just a little background about me: I grew up in Asia, and I... More

We went to the beach and therefore only paid for the parking. My kids (2 and 7) needed a rest from the long hours drive. The beach is huge, wild, the sea was warm and we stayed until sunset, leaving with regret. We had a warm shower afterwards and went on with our trip. We regretted not to be able... More

Beautiful, clean beach. We liked that we could take our Grand-dog. We got to see lots of ponies close up and from afar. Our group consisted of four generations, everyone enjoyed themselves, WOW! How often do you make that many age groups happy at one time? This beautiful Seashore did it! We hope to return soon.

At first we thought $20 seemed pricey for a car to enter, but this ticket is good for a week. A boat tour costs about $40 a person and lasts a few hours. We drove only a few hundred feet and saw several wild horses on the side of the road. Then drove a 1/2 mile to the beach which... More

We went here years ago when our oldest was 3. She loved all the ponies and the hike was fun for her. Dad only carried her a bit.
