Great place. Easy to find and the ponies were great to see. Did some hiking and beach walking. Great for families. Next trip we would like to try the OSV and drive down through the dunes.

Assateague State and Federal Park is a don't miss in the Berlin area. You can spend the day on the beach or hiking the many trails. The wild ponies alone make the trip worthwhile.

Good diversion from the noise and drunks of Ocean City. Take a blanket and enjoy the beach. Camping is good if you can get a reservation

Assateague State Park on a cold winter evening is very peaceful you can hear the animals for miles. The sunsets are very pretty too.

Don't miss this if you are in the area - even in the winter! A great way to spend a few hours on a sunny day off season. The wild ponies are so special, and the island deer are really cute. There is a new foal now, but we did not happen to see it this trip. Drive slowly along... More

We had reservations to camp at Assateaque Island National Seashore but thanks to the Government shut down were unable to. So instead we headed back up the road to the State Park. It was almost to good to be true. Everything happens for a reason. There are many different sites depending upon what size you are looking for. One section... More

If you like the sound of the ocean at night, large camp sites, a clean setting and warm showers you will love Assateque State Park. The roaming wild ponies are at added feature ( do not feed them). The beach is wide clean and goes for miles. The National Park is next door and is fun for the whole family... More

Assateague State Park is a great place to visit when you are vacationing in OC. It's the only place I've been where you can have wild ponies running past you on the beachs. They have several beach areas right on the ocean and also bay areas where you can watch the horses and the sitka deer. This is a place... More

If you do not turn right into the more well-known National Park, you will find all you could ask for going straight to the Maryland Sate Park. There are a well -run camping and RV set-up, a handy store, and a restaurant. Do not expect fancy cooking, but there are the basics in both the restaurant and the store to... More
