Everyone should experience the beach areas with the horse walking by you. There was many campers. I went for a day to see the horses. Took many pictures. Very clean. There are many other wildlife on this island. Close to Ocean city. Glad that I went there for my summer holidays from Canada. Its a most see. You will enjoy this visit.
Beautiful, unspoilt coastline

For a $15 weekly pass you can get access to the whole of the Assateague National Seashore which divides between Virginia and Maryland. It is a beautiful place. At the southern end, nearest to Chincoteague Island, there is a stunning beach. It does not, however, have any facilities so you need to take everything with you for your day. It can get intensely hot. Fascinating wild life abounds and on a boat trip between Assateague and Chincoteague we were so pleased to encounter many dolphins and ospreys as well as getting a glimpse of 2 herds ot the famous ponies.

This National Seashore is the most amazing place! The beach is less crowded than Ocean City's beaches and where else in the world can you see wild ponies just roaming around! The $15.00 pass is for an entire week and as far as I am concerned a great deal to see something like this. We really enjoyed watching the ponies walk on the beach. It was so natural and untainted! All I can say is it was simply wonderful and I would go back in a heartbeat!!! So happy that we had this experience of a lifetime!
Great beach and location

This is a great place for a vacation on ocean beach. Only $15 for park entrance for the week with lots of parking. You don't have to fight for a place on the beach as it's a long beach and wide enough for everyone to enjoy. I liked the fact that a portion is exclusive to swimming, and boogie board or surf on each side. You will enjoy watching the horse move freely all around. Great bicycle path which new asphalt. We stayed not too far at Island Resort Campground, which is the best kept secret due to large lot, peaceful and quiet. I went before and stayed at another campground which was way too crowed for my taste. This one made our holidays one the best one.

Not worth the time and money. The beach is four miles from any lodging and there is no grocery store on the island. If you exceed the 25 mile an hour speed limit your subjected to a full and humiliating sobriety test, whether drinking or not, and you will receive a traffic ticket for $180. Definitely not worth the time or money.
