Serene and beautiful place. The horses are almost majestic during sunrise. I can't wait to go back. Camping on the beach here is like nothing I've ever experienced before. Warning: the mosquitos and flies are super intense. My partner and I had brought an environmentally friendly, all natural insect repellent, and it was useless. We might as well have sprayed... More

Have been going to Ocean City, MD for years but never made it here. Finally went this year and took our bicycles to ride around. Stopped at the Visitor's Center before the bridge and were told we could go over the bridge and park for free, then ride into the park...which was not true. Ended up paying the $20 fee... More

This beach is 20 min south of OC and offers great scenery, less crowds, longer beach surface, showers and public restrooms (last two which I'm at a loss at why they are so hard to find in OC). If the crowds and noise and difficulty parking at OC get to you... You might very well consider packing up food and... More

Nice alternative to OC's beaches. Spent the day here. Entry fee is per car load and is good for a week.The beach was large and guarded. There are bathrooms, a changing area , and a snack shop. There are wild ponies that come down to the beach but watch out they look for food and are good at finding it... More

I have to admit that this park has lots of beautiful areas, great beaches, and scenery. I also love to see those wild ponies walking back and forth and digging into travelers belongs/food. I didn't have a lot fun on the day I went there because they said the electricity was out. Okay that's fine! But I didn't expect to... More

This is a great afternoon to get away from the craziness of Ocean City! See the horses - walk around and check out the scenery - really great beaches. Great Day! Some parts were free and other parts required an entry fee to drive around.

Few years back I was attacked by an army of misquitos at the walk-in oceanside camp ground (site 71). I blamed it on the nearby vegetation and wet meadow. So this time I booked the drive-in oceanside campground (site 32). The location is great and I don't need to haul all my camp and beach stuff for a long walk.... More

Nice beach, nicer and cleaner than Ocean City. Nicer crowd of people and families. No attractions, no boardwalk. Just beach.

We camped on Assateague island and it was beautiful. The campsites are a good size, we had 2 6 person tents and a pop up canopy and still had plenty of room. The site comes with a picnic bench and a fire put with a grill attached to it. Both of these things were a nice addition as we had... More
