This is such a great resource, and a welcome contrast to the beaches in Ocean City in terms of crowds. Not much shade so bring an umbrella. Well maintained and clean bathrooms beach-side. You'll be rewarded by picking a day when the ocean breeze is blowing and avoiding days when the bay breeze is blowing. A number of people warned... More

We saw a horse walk off the beach and just stand in the parking lot, then as we left the park, saw about 10 by the side of the road. AWESOME experience for the kids

This is a lovely place to get out among a true sea shore environment. The ocean beach (37 miles of it) is great and much less crowded than most other spaces available. Sightseeing, kayaking, fishing and biking are just a few of the activities that make this an amazing place if you enjoy outdoor spaces. But you really have to... More

The visitor centre is before you actually get to the park, it is well worth a stop. The park is superb, we did all three trails, and saw lots of wild life. I was surprised at all the horses we saw. It is expensive though: $20 to get in for the day! It was too hot to spend time on... More

Have a chance to bike ride from Bethany Beach to Assateague. After suffering through the honky-tonk known as Ocean City Maryland, it was a pleasure to arrive in Assateague.once you arrive at the visitor center, it is about a 10 mile round-trip on the island by bike. That will take you to what is known as the South Beach. It... More

So quiet & peaceful a lovely antidote to busy cities & driving. we saw the wild ponies in the distance, deer up very close & a few bald eagles. Walked along the beach, visited the very informative visitor centre which had hands on stuff for the children & walked the short trail to the lighthouse. a very enjoyable 3-4 hours.... More

It is almost surreal to go to a fantastic beach and have wild horses come by. There is excellent crabbing on the back side of the island. If you go camping there, be careful and watch out for ticks! Simply a great National Park. We have gone yearly to go to the beach and then crab in the evening. If... More

Short on time but we stopped at the Assateague National Seashore Visitor Center with 5 kids from 4 years to 9 years old There is a Jr Ranger booklet ( one for the younger ones and a different one for the older child) which added so much to the experience for the children. When the booklet is completed there was... More
