Assateague is one of those places that makes it OK to live in the very crowded Mid-Atlantic. Between the Maryland State Park, the National Seashore and Chincoteague (the Virginia side of the island), you're sure to find just about any sort of beach experience you're looking for. The one experience you won't find, though, is crowded boardwalks and bars. More... More

This is one of our favorite places to go. We are fortunate to live only miles away. I take many pictures there, of not only the beaches, but of the many wild horses and deer that roam the island. The beaches are beautiful and go on for miles. It is nature is it's finest. It has gotten more and more... More

I visited Assateague State Park with a group of friends and my boyfriend. All I knew about the park previously was that it was a sister to the more well-known Chincoteague Island. Not surprisingly, I loved this place! We started out in the visitor center, where we got to learn about some of the flora and fauna and history of... More

Very peaceful place to visit. Ocean City is a few miles away for all the entertainment you could want. Frontier Town is just down the road. Plenty todo or not to do. Bike paths are all over the Park.

Our summer place is just a few miles away from Asateague Island National Seashore. We go all the time and never tire of it. We rent kayaks and stand up paddle boards and have a blast every time. Dog friendly, they come with us (call ahead to ensure they don't have a scheduled group that will use all the kayaks-http://www.mdcoastalbays.org/rentals).... More

If you want unspoiled beaches, the ability to drive on the beach, and wild horses, this is the place for you. It can get hot in the summer, and buggy, but if the wind is right, it is paradise. There are guarded beaches for those in need, but the real joy is driving your 4 wheel drive to your own... More

Assateague is a nice place to visit for a few hours while you are staying in OC md. A great place to camp for a few days. The ponies roam about free. The beach is nice and you can walk to the bay.

then we walked around and seen tons of horses. The waves were crazy and we had a lot of fun. Went on a windy day so maybe that's why the bugs didn't bug us like other reviews I read. We want to go back like now. We could have stayed for days but just did the one day thinking it... More
