The ocean front sites are gorgeous, but the mosquitos are horrendous!!! Before going we had read reviews saying bayside was bad, but ocean side was brutal too. We left after one night of our multi night stay because of it. It was unbearable even with citronella candles, citronella incense, sage bundles, and I even broke down and bought bug spray... More

My significant other and I decided to take an adventure from Rhode Island on a long weekend. I had heard of the island where wild horses roam free and decided what better time to go than the present time? We booked our campsite (oceanfront) and a few weeks later we headed on our way to Maryland. We arrived during Hurricane... More

My huband and I visited Assateague Beach on vacation on May 28th for the day with friends. The beach was clean, not too crowded and just beautiful. Had we known it was this good, we would have come here everyday all week long. The fee was 20.00 to park for 7 days. The parking was easy and close. There were... More

Assateague is one of the most beautiful back country camping spots I've ever been to. You can either hike or kayak and while the campsites are in the woods, a beautiful beach is within a short hike. The sunsets over the water are amazing and the ponies on Chincoteague are definitely an experience.

This was a really nice spot--clean, well-cared for. About 5 miles from the parking lot (plenty when carrying a backpack across the sand), shaded and well protected. Each site has a picnic table, fire pit, and a hook for hanging lanterns or other items. The soft sand covered with pine needles made for a very comfortable place to sleep as... More

There seems to be a security problem here. Let me explain: After spending one night in a tent on the ocean side, the high winds and strong rain convinced me to try a bayside site instead. I tried to set up my tent at the new site on bayside but it was too windy. I decided to throw my wet... More

We were staying in OCMD OVER Thanksgiving week and made a trip down coast to the island. We weren't expecting to see any wildlife that late in the season but we were greeted by several wild horses. The views were unbelievable, the park was clean and the staff on the island were awesome. We went to the visitor center and... More

We camped here 3 nights recently and only wish we could have stayed longer. The beach just over the dunes seems to go on forever and is beautiful. The wild horses on the National Seashore make the stay here even more special. They are very calming and exciting to see at the same time. Waking to see the sun rise... More
