Assateague is great place to go. If you go the state park in MD it only cost $4. If you go to Assateague National Sea Shore it cost more. It is well it for both. The only problem with the National Seashore is that the lines get backed up. They need to have a ranger filtering cars with passes through... More

Campsites steps to the beach. Clean basic bathrooms with hot showers. Fire ring and picnic table. The beach is clean and awesome, one of my favorite. Love seeing the ponies too. I will definitely go back again and again.

We camp here with our grandson every year. He's now almost 8 and this was our fifth year taking him to this exceptional facility. Beautiful unspoiled beaches, wild ponies everywhere, and quiet, tranquil surroundings.

This was our second time visiting the park. This time was with our kids and we had told them all about the ponies... and the ponies did not disappoint! They were everywhere. We rented bikes and toured the park as best we could. We also visited the beaches and we were very impressed with how clean it was. If you... More

Can't say enough about this park! It is phenomenal. Stunning scenery. Really great camping spots and so many fun things to do. Kayaking and fishing or just biking the trails. Beautiful horses roaming free! I will be making a special trip back just to spend some more time here!

We made 2 day trips here while visiting ocean city. When you pay to enter your parking pass is good for 7 day. Seeing horses roaming around freely is something every child should experience. There are also many beautiful beaches and bay areas to spend the day. Pack a picnic, rent a kayak or paddle board and enjoy the sights.

This is a nice ride. We spent an afternoon seeing all the stops. the information center at the very beginning is very interesting. We did get a lot of good pictures of the ponies and deer.

Assateague state park and Assateague National seashore used to be a hidden gem but now it's a very busy place. It's a beach without all the rules of ocean city. You can bring your dog anytime and many people do. Some areas have life guards and some do not. You can skim board and surf most places along with swimmers.... More
