The experience is awesome. If you want to see ponies up close and personal while in the wild then this is the place for you. We went because we wanted to be able to interact with wild ponies.

We were staying an Ocean City, so it was nice to get away from the crowds. We didn't see any horses but really enjoyed the beaches! Only negative was the flies were bad. We didn't have bug spray, but I'm sure that would have helped.

Always love the wildness and the openness!! Love the fact that dogs are not permitted on the beach at the state park!

That park is large with many places to enjoy the beach. The added attraction is the wild horses. We were able to get a 20.00 weekly pass to the park. We plan on going again. The beaches are peaceful and not crowded.

We camp here almost every year. The sites are right next to the ocean, which means you get a constant breeze-this keeps down the bugs and the heat. The bathrooms are clean and updated with hot showers

Beautiful scenery. Lots of open space to explore. Beaches have rough waves on the ocean side. Beach near camping sites 20-40 can be accessed via a wooden walking platform. There are free enclosed showers to use after swimming.
