We go to Assateague every year. Hit the Federal park as opposed to the Maryland state park. Clean beaches, small snack bar at north beach. This beach also has lifeguards. South beach less populated but swim at your own risk. Changing area and primitive toilets...More

The State Park is the best option. There is a $20 fee to enter, but it is worth it. There are many areas to drive into and park your car. The park is very large and you may have to move from area to area to see the horses. Lot's of camping areas throughout. The beaches are magnificent in any case, whether or not you see horses. For the record, we have been to Assateague a few time over the years and have always seen horses as well as deer. Keep a safe distance if you are on foot as the animals are wild. People have been kicked or bitten because they do look tame and approachable. You will enjoy this experience.
