As always, beautiful natural scenery and great wild horses!

Love everything about this park! Great biking path that keeps you close to the beach and the dunes with guaranteed sightings of the wild horses. Park staff very helpful.

Dog friendly ???

We ended up leaving early because the seniors-on-scooters kept checking up on us because the dogs weren't on their leashes, even in our on campsite. we kept them on a leash until the next morning when we opened up the tent flap, one dog decided he couldn't wait for us and went on his own to poop. The senior-on-a-scooter was waiting for us and wrote us up for not having a leash on the dog. We've never had trouble before but this site is becoming a police area where they are constantly checking on you. Seniors with a scooter are dangerous! Watch out for them! We wont be back.
Bring your bug spray!

This was my second trip to Assateague beach and canoeing/kayaking rentals. We did the kayaks first and they are very reasonably priced. We then left and drove across the street to go on the beach. We were planning on staying for a couple hours but only lasted 15 minutes. It was a very long and hot walk to the water only to find out the hard way that the flies were a killer! As we were deciding if we should leave, the ponies all came over to our area and we got lots of good pictures. The ponies were our deciding factor. We saw them so we left and went back to the ocean city beach that was bug free.
Beautiful and Awesome!

The wildlife is amazing! Camping great (with no hookups). Make sure if you are using a tent, as we did, you are prepared for sand and high winds. Have proper stakes! Restrooms/ showers clean for a campground. Although the water is very cold and the waves are rougher than we are used to in more southern waters, the beach is awesome. There are activities for the family. Biggest drawback is no laundry facilities. There are some that are very good (as far a laundry facilities go) nearby.
