    Unfortunate that the northern and southern ends are not connected-very small park on the north side, but nice beach access. More trails and the lighthouse on the south end

    Obviously you have to see the horses! Keep your distance though!

  • M K.

    Don't leave food out, the horses will get into it.

    Enjoy relaxing on the 37 miles of beach or hiking by day, and buckle down your tent right by the crashing waves for a night under the stars. There’s even a community of wild horses. How exotic! Read more

    Bring bug spray that works for biting flies. Leave the horses alone.

    Everything. This has to be one of the most beautiful places I've been.

    Rules don't apply on Assateague. Sign at the beach: "no dogs." We saw about a dozen. Sign at the campsite: "no ground fires." There were fire rings all over. So have fun! Do whatever you want!

    1 of the best camping spots. Don't recommend summer tho. Bugs & heat bad. Bring firewood-place right before u enter, bugspray & sunscreen! Lots of ponies..beware they r wild & come right into sites!

    Stephanie R · July 20, 2013

    Incredible wildlife, amazing views and a quality beach. Even a snack bar on the North Beach! Divided into federal and state parks that preserve the ponies & gorgeously innate wildlife.

    Jake Charles · July 16, 2013
  • Melissa P.

    Beautiful scenery and beaches. We got lucky and saw TONS of ponies but be prepared you might not see any. It costs to go into the park, but the pass was good for a week so well worth it.

    Crowded around the parking area .. But very few people when u walk down a few hundred feet

    The beach was clean, but the water was cold!

    It's wack...not for younger people. Go to OC better.

    Kevin Jr · July 5, 2013

    The Maryland side offers more beach and primitive camping facilities, and the Virginia side more migratory birds, denser pine forests, more wildlife viewing, and delights like Assateague Lighthouse! Read more · May 30, 2013

    Absolutely beautiful beach. The biting flies & mosquitos can be unforgiving. Bring Avon skin so soft and an umbrella.

    Kamau McAbee · September 3, 2012
  • Lorraine E.

    Bring your bug spray if you go into the marsh area to see the ponies. The flies bite hard and I hear the ponies will too so keep your distance.

    Lorraine Esposito · August 10, 2012

    You can grill at the end beach!

    What does a gay horse eat?

    They allow dogs!

    The best beach days are when breeze is blowing from the East.

    Best place camp, and have fun. Get the OSV pass for $90. It's so worth the money. There is no entry fee to the island and you ride the beach year round. Its Aways A Blast. P.S.- and there's wild life.

    Bobby P · April 21, 2012
  • Anthony D Paul

    If it's a holiday weekend, get here early! Other times are fine. Get the annual pass if you plan on coming more than once. Same cost as two visits and good year-round!

    Anthony D Paul · April 4, 2012

    Stop by in the off season. No bugs and it's still beautiful.

    Don't forget bug spray. The mosquitoes are fierce.

    Pick up your trash, put your umbrella more than 3" deep in the sand, and for Christ sake do not feed the seagulls.

    Take some pics w the wild ponies ! Dolphins in the water everyday is pretty nice too :)

    Jilly Sun · August 20, 2011

    Remember to bring some bug spray! Only a half mile walk on a trail and dozens of bug bites.

    After the Ash Wednesday Storm of 1962, the federal government banned development on this 37-mile stretch of pristine beach. Today, there are no houses here, just campsites. (From Aerial America) Read more

    This is a nice escape from Ocean City, MD... A lot of scenic observation points and a great visitor center. There's a lifeguarded beach and wild ponies. Maybe you'll be lucky and find some treasure!!

    Benjamin Overholt · June 10, 2011
  • Dan M.

    Head up 376 about 2 miles. Look for the machine shoal on your left. $15 gets you enough firewood for 3 nights. They also offer smaller bundles for $10 and buckets full for $2!

    Dan Morrison · September 29, 2010
  • Sarah W.

    Make your camping reservation early for summer, it books quickly.

    place to visit the beach in summer instead of the inlet, fewer people.
