Assateague is like being in another time. Everything slows down and you can just relax with nature. No noisy boardwalk, no high rise condos. Just,sand,surf and the wild ponies. Love,love,love.My children spent the happiest days of their childhood camping and fishing here with their dad.

Two friends and I just completed our first back country camping trip in Assateague Island, MD in late August. We completed a single night canoe-in camping at Pine Tree Campsite on the bay side of Assateague Island over 5 miles South of the ranger station. The Good: The campsite was on a peninsula and which provided scenic views, a mild... More

Just got back from my first camping trip at Assateague. The campsites were not right on top of each other, which was nice. Also you set up your tent on the grass instead of a gravel pad. Three tents (6 people) were allowed on the site. There were definitely horses EVERYWHERE. Roaming through the campsites, hanging out by the water... More

We stayed on the beach side camping site #31. This is a pretty nice campground. They provide you with a fire ring with a grill attached to it. The bathrooms weren't too bad for being outhouses and the showers had warmish/cold water. The horses will walk into your sites and pretty much behave as raccoons that could kick the crap... More

When I'm having a stressful day, I relax and think about my "happy place", Assateague Island. My absolute favorite memory of this island will always be the times that I've watched the sunrise on the beach. On my most recent visit I was thrilled to see 8 ponies sleeping on the beach when I strolled over to watch the sunrise.... More

We were camping there with bunch of friends on Labor day 2013. Naturally, place was packed and some areas were looking quite crowded, but our spot at the end of loop I was spacious and nice. Even though, those might be the busiest days of the year, the beach is not crowded at all, and is very nice! Bath houses... More

We just spent the weekend camping on a drive up oceanside campsite and it was great. There are outdoor showers with cool water and the outdoor toilets are very clean. The wild ponies roam freely but they won't bother you as long as you follow the rules (i.e keep food in a hard cover container, do not feed the ponies,... More

Enormous stretches of gorgeous sandy beach, wild ponies, morning beach sunrises . . . this is all at your fingertips from the camp. It's a wonderful experience. We set up camp in the bayside loop and hiked all day down long stretches of beach. As others have advised, the horses are wild animals. Protect your food and don't approach them.... More

My family and I had a blast at Assategue. We only stayed the weekend, but it was beautiful. The bay and the ocean were perfect. The bathroom facilities accomadated families with small children. I just wish someone had warned us the the horses are somewhat aggressive, they know that peopple have food and will enter the camp sites to find... More

I adored the national park at Assateauge Island! The campsites were on beach sand, the park rangers were helpful and easygoing and the portapotties were emptied everyday and hosed down! We camped steps away from the beach, there was no seaweed in the water and we could see porpoises, wild horses, all kinds of birds, and crustaceans. I liked that... More
