Spring Break Vacation
Mar 27, 2015 by: M00se1976 from Rochester, New York, Usa
Being a outdoor guy and a hiker, this is a good place to visit. You can't really drive around. It is very limit. My wife and I took a hike on all three trails. THat was a learning experience. We had lunch picnic on the beach two times. We saw numerous birds and horses. For my wife, she enjoyed the experience to the MAX. She is a horse lover. She is still in dazed.
Enjoyed it, even in the cold and wind

We had a great walk on the beach, looking at shells and dodging the waves. Also enjoyed cataloging birds (just a few - most of the wintering fowl had already left), but the flocks of snow geese were mighty impressive! David Attenborough, eat your heart out! The kids also enjoyed getting a tour of the aquarium critters at the Tom's Cove Visitor Center, and watching the ponies (brought our binoculars). We're coming back with our bikes when it gets warmer!
Great Beach and Wild Ponies
Mar 11, 2015 by: Sail_or_Dive from USA
Wild Ponies, Wild Ponies and Wild Pony Poop Piles. This is a great to park to visit. Unlike the Virginia side, dogs are welcome here. There are two camping areas, one on the ocean side and one on the bay side. The bay side is great for fishing, clamming, crabbing, canoeing and paddle boarding. Bring your dog, RV or tent and enjoy the day or week. No electric for you RV people. Go to MD State Park up the road if you need power.
Even during 35 degrees..

With not much to do after Maryland's last snowstorm in March 2015, we had a nice drive around the park. Walked the beach by the off road vehicle entrance. Outdoor restroom, like an upscale port a potty. But this was off season. Beach was very clean. Saw one pony and two deer. Glad the road had been plowed. Usually $15 just to enter the park, there was no attendant present. Very relaxing.
Wild Horses of Assateague!
Mar 04, 2015 by: Diane T from Cincinnati, Ohio, United States
We originally planned on only going to the Ocean City beach for this trip but went over to Assateague after it was suggested by the owners of house we rented. It is one of the most beautiful sights to see the wild horses on the beach! We went there three days of our stay. The beach was never overcrowded. It is peaceful and serene. We also went bicycling one morning there. We only went to Ocean City to people watch on the boardwalk and of course, eat!
