Love seeing the wildlife!

This is a nice place to go through with kids. The horses are beautiful and the educational center is worth a look. This will please any nature lover!
Exactly what we had hoped it would be

With a 12-year-old granddaughter in tow, we had hoped to dodge the OC nonsense, and with a bit of luck, see some wild horses up close. The waves were steady yet the right size for J to learn to body-surf, and despite being a holiday weekend, she had plenty of room to play without bumping into people like she would in OC. Being the hottest month of the year, the horses came around to cool off and she got to see them up close and personal. The small store has a few mildly-overpriced items like drinks and ice cream, but we packed for the day and managed to keep most of our pocket money where it belongs, aside from a small souvenir or two. After noon you'll need to hike a bit for some spaces, but there are a few access bridges to shorten your trip a bit if you plan your parking accordingly. Full bathroom - change-house combo, and outdoor showers to rinse the sand off. Reasonably priced, family-friendly, and well managed. We plan to go again next season.
Go see the ponies.

The wild ponies, visitor center, boardwalk nature trails, beach. Visiting in October was good. It wasn't crowded and the weather is still mild. Be sure to see the movie at the visitor center.

A must see !! The horses are beautiful. The scenery is breathtaking. The fee is for crossing over the bridge to the shoreline. Make sure you visit gift store, great children's books and gift ideas for the whole family.

Enjoyed the Assateague horses and area. Horses were by the road in several places so they were very easy to watch and enjoy. Also visited the Rackliffe Plantation House when in the park. Admission of $5 was very reasonable and very informative.
