Excellent family adventure or just you. Lots of horses to see. Please stay away, they are wild animals and you should treat the horses with respect. camping available, although we have not tried the camping.

Wild horses, Great hiking and biking trails, and a beautiful beach. If you're travelling from DE, NJ or PA, Assateague is much easier to reach than Chincoteague as well.

If you're not a fan of the crowd, go to Assateague instead of Ocean City. The beaches are so much cleaner & quieter & if you're lucky you might get to see some of the wild ponies.

Beautiful scenery, pristine beaches, wildlife roaming free (horses, deer, etc) and clean air. Need more? Fun body surfing, family camping (tents or campers), a calm bay to wade in for the little tykes, picnic tables and fire pits, canoes and kayaks, nature walks. Convinced? Yes. It is perfect.

Awesome! We camped right on the beachfront. Yes, right along with the ponies! It was truly a great experience. Don't deny yourself the fun. We saw the ponies everywhere. (Proper food storage is required. Ponies will go after any improperly stored items. Also, no touching or feeding of the ponies. You should maintain a respectful distance. They are wild and... More

My family and I recently vacationed for 10 days at Assateague State Park. This experience was slightly different because we actually were able to get an electric site during peak season. This is extremely difficult to do! I hate to say it, but my family is spoiled by electricity. We loved it even more. I managed to get site H27-... More

Beautiful day! Seen a lot of the horses. Everything was well taken care of. Weather was hot, but breezy. Bug's was really mean. So bring bug spray.
