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.

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

The wildlife is amazing! Camping great (with no hookups). Make sure if you are using a tent, as we did, you are prepared for sand and high winds. Have proper stakes! Restrooms/ showers clean for a campground. Although the water is very cold and the waves are rougher than we are used to in more southern waters, the beach is... More

The beach at Assateague is not as crowded and we had horses come on the beach also. One was playful and was laying down in the sand rolling on his back.

Absolutely beautiful place to visit. My wife said it reminded her of the wild west until you went over the dunes and then, it was all ocean. Check in was easy although the lady who waited on us was a bit short with me because I could not immediately spit out the site number. Yeah, I probably should have been... More

This is by far one of the best camping sites along the eastern coast.We spent three days here,biking kayaking and the best part nice empty beaches,maybe a horse or two other than that its like being on a private beach. The wild horses are pretty cocky,if you just keep your site clear there should not be any problems.Defiantly returning next... More

Maryland's smallish "down the ocean" coast is characterized by two (both wonderful) beach extremes. There is Ocean City, with it's iconic boardwalk and crowded beach and, 8 miles south the Assateague Island National Seashore, uncrowded, pristine, managed ny the National Park Service and protected by federal law from development, downside being the usual National park asceticism i.e. pit toilets and...
