Had a great time with our sons and families...the water was great...the first time at the beach for two of my grandchildren...but, all of them loved it..So nice to be able to pet the ponies.... We were staying at "The Home of the Brave" and it was especially nice for the park to give the free pass to my military... More

Assateague State Park has been a family favorite for 3 generations in our family. We love everything about the island! First of all, there is nothing there, but sand, beach, animals and bugs! It is a great place to park your rig. You need to make your own fun. If you cannot do that, then a trip there could prove... More

In fifteen we have yet to have a visit where a horse didn't tear up a beach chair or someones screen tent because... More

We just got home from our week long camping trip and I can't wait until we can do it all again. One of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in. The beach is close enough, you just walk over the dune crossing and there you are. Falling asleep to to the sound of the waves, the ponies visiting your site. You... More

We wanted something a little more quiet than the OC beach so we headed over to Assateague to see the horses and stroll the beach. We loved looking at all the areas inside the park and strolling the beach. Very clean and well maintained. It was great that you can pay 1 price and access the area for a full... More

My husband and I camped at Assateague State Park July 2nd. We loved it! I thought it would be super hot; It was around 90 degrees, but we could barely feel the heat because of the amazing ocean winds. Be sure to bring sunblock for that matter. We initially were going to to go to the national park, but we... More

It was really cool to see the ponies up close, in their natural setting. I would highly recommend this to everyone.

MD state park has been allowing first call first serve reservations. After sitting on hold for almost an hour it was worth the wait. Camped in spot F 11, right in the dunes within earshot of the crashing waves. the camp ground restrooms were under construction, this kept a lot of the RV campers away making for a more serene...

Assateague State Park offers an excellent beach with great facilities. Nice bathhouse for changing into your swim gear. After you have fun at the beach, you can take a warm shower and change into street close. This is very convenient, and gets you comfortable after a day in the park.
