People tend to check in during these times:
Amazing scenery, wild life, water (both Ocean and back bays), claming, fishing, family fun. This place has it all and then some!
Steeler loves Assateague!!!
A very nice, relaxing island and it HAS WILD PONIES! I really dude fan girl over that.
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
Don't feed the horses.The horses are walking all over people blankets,crushing phones and are eating people's food.
Obviously you have to see the horses! Keep your distance though!
Don't leave food out, the horses will get into it.
Bring bug spray that works for biting flies. Leave the horses alone.
Nobody's really going to bust you if you bring alcohol to the beach, but do not litter at all. This is a national park, after all.
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!
Unreal sand, regular waves. Great for families. Bring your own snacks and beers.
Clean beautiful beach !
Lots of crabs! Watch out
Beautiful! So peaceful. Places to pull over on the drive to the beach to bird watch. One day the horses were kind of close. Nice porch at the visitor's center to sit and rock and look at the water.
Be sure to Stop into the visitors center at Toms Cove on your first day on the island. They have great activities for families and kids. Many of these are free.
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!
Water is warmer on the bay side.
Nice beach but they don't allow pets
Very nice rural beach
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.
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.
Bring your bug spray!
Perfect beach. Drive right up and pitch your umbrella. Ideal location.
Absolutely beautiful beach. The biting flies & mosquitos can be unforgiving. Bring Avon skin so soft and an umbrella.
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.
Park at the very end of the beach near the Over Sand Vehicle entrance. Just a short walk from the lot, the beach is much less crowded.
Nothing more needs be said.

There are trash cans, but they're not prevalent. Bring your own bag to collect trash in to keep this shoreline clean.
You can grill at the end beach!
The insects aren't nearly so bad when the weather has been dry. Bring water.
What does a gay horse eat?
They allow dogs!
The best beach days are when breeze is blowing from the East.
Showers are COLD, leave a container of water in your car while @ the beach; you'll have warm water to clean up with.
Bring a large container of H2O and leave in your car while enjoying the beach. You'll have warm water to clean up with. Beach showers COLD!
Get in the water!
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.
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!
St. Patrick's Day camping.
Enjoy the clean beaches, beautiful scenery, and WILD PONIES!
Stop by in the off season. No bugs and it's still beautiful.
