Very lovely and natural beach, uncommerialized, very clean, and horse siting are exciting and fun. High recommended. I hope to return sometime soon. The only negative is having to cross the bridge to get to it.

I was camping with my family, which included infant and small toddler and 5,6 and 7 year old. The ponies are extremely aggressive ,more so than bears in Yellowstone. You have to be... More

This is a nice beach area that is not terribly crowded when the ones on the mainland are crazy. It is a deep beach though and tough walking for an old girl like me. The rest rooms are clean but not fancy and the whole area is well kept. Watch out for the ponies as you are coming and going.

Enjoyed the wildlife very much and the beach was only a few feet from the campground. Bathhouses were adequate, typical campground showers. This is an alcohol free campground so do not look to enjoy your alcoholic beverages here. Will camp here again.

Love everything about this park! Great biking path that keeps you close to the beach and the dunes with guaranteed sightings of the wild horses. Park staff very helpful.

We ended up leaving early because the seniors-on-scooters kept checking up on us because the dogs weren't on their leashes, even in our on campsite. we kept them on a leash until the next morning when we opened up the tent flap, one dog decided he couldn't wait for us and went on his own to poop. The senior-on-a-scooter was... More

This was my second trip to Assateague beach and canoeing/kayaking rentals. We did the kayaks first and they are very reasonably priced. We then left and drove across the street to go on the beach. We were planning on staying for a couple hours but only lasted 15 minutes. It was a very long and hot walk to the water... More
