Camping Beach Side in Assateague in October

Any ideas on how I can stake or anchor my tent? I got a great deal on this one: target.com/p/…A-11899627

Also, does anyone know if there is anywhere this time of year to rent a kayak or canoe?

You bury the stakes. To be real secure there are stakes specially for beach camping, bigger then your normal pin stakes that come with most tents. If you don't have them, depending on how long things that come with your tent that are attached to the grommets you can tie a rope to it then attach it to a strong stick and bury it. Then laugh when other people's tents fly away ;) Some people just depend on the weight of whats in the tent to keep it down, but that can become an issue in real strong winds (I have seen tents rip around whatever was securing them) and when putting up your tent.

http://www.ayerscreekadventures.com/ maybe they can help with rentals.

I live here, so I don't camp, sounds like good advice from Post #1.

Thanks! Sounds like a stupid question but: Do you know how we get the kayaks onto the island? Or do they transport them or something?

There were on island rentals when we were there, although we brought our own, so not sure of the specifics. Are you camping in the MD State park or National Park? There is a difference in policies etc. Tha National Park has no hot water for showers, too cold for me in October!
