My husband and I and 2 daughters (2 & 4) enjoyed a day at a beach on Assateague State Park. My daughters would not stop talking about the ponies on the beach. While they weren't exactly on the beach, they were on the sides of...More
Beautiful park. Camping area looks to be a great place to stay. The wild horses were beautiful to watch. Letting air out of tires and driving on the beach was fun to do and finding a good spot to park and set up beach for...More
If you love nature, you will love the park. The wold horses come right up on the beach but be careful they are relentless at taking your food!! We have have the best of luck clamming there and enjoying them for dinner. There is also...More
Nice place to visit if your staying in Ocean City. About a 8 mile drive to Assateague State to see the ponies grazing or drinking from ponds. It's $20 for car to get in and they have a really nice beach to swim in also....More
While Ocean City is a hyper tourist town with tens of thousands of visitors at one time Assateague Island is vast land ruled by nature and little civilization around. Huge fields of plant life cover much of the island and much of the ground is...More
We took a day trip to Assateague. Its a fairly short drive through the country from the southern end of Ocean City and is a very pleasant contrast to the hyperactive, densely packed OC boardwalk scene.

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.
