This is one of my favorite places to be when in the area. If you haven't had the pleasure to visit or camp here, you need to take the time to do it. It is so close to Ocean City (10 miles down Rt 611 south) that you could make it a quick trip or spend all day here. The... More

We drove over to the island hoping to see some of the ponies. Unfortunately we only saw one. It was out in a marshy area that was too far away to even get a picture. We were disappointed that we did not see more.

This is by far one of our favorite places to camp. If you love the beach, this is the place to go. The campgrounds offer many sites whether you are tent camping, in a pop-up or a motorhome. Each camp site has a paved pad for parking, a large picnic table with benches and a fire ring. Some camp loops... More

Enjoyed the park and would go back again to kayak. Spent time hiking and seeking out the horses and found many to take pictures as well as the local deer population

Crossing the bridge onto Assateague Island brings you into another world. The beautiful view along with spotting a herd of wild ponies in the marsh or along the side of the road is breath taking. Make sure you go the speed limit or you'll get a ticket. Also, the ponies are their to look at, not to feed or pet.... More

Better than the other campgrounds which resemble Amusement Parks anymore. Awesome for traditional campers.

This was a nice outing for an afternoon. There are picnic areas, camping areas, and a beach. It's just a nice peaceful getaway, at least in April. The wild horses were not apparent at first then we saw them in the distance. We happened to see a gentleman who was riding a bike and whose job it was to check... More

I was camping at the National Park side, but twice now I have spent a day at the State Park side. I cannot comment on camping on the State side, but I enjoyed the grill and the gift shop, when I was there in season. This time around, they weren't open while I was there (late April). I did have...

Seeing wild horses walking around, swimming in the bay was a great experience. The beaches and dunes are beautiful. The Rangers were helpful and attentive.

We saw a lot of beautiful wild ponies grazing in the grass when we were driving in. We stop at the visitor center which was really nice and saw some ponies through the binoculars. Great place to visit.
