Wonderful family camping!
Jan 12, 2015 by: Oma1949 from Hyattsville, Maryland
Every August my husband and I take our grandson, now age 7, tent camping to this wonderful, natural seashore. We spend all day at the beach (my husband being a body surfer from San Diego) where Henry makes friends with other kids, builds sand castles, and looks for shells. We ride our bikes, participate in some onsite activities, and occasionally drive to Ocean City for a meal or other activity. Can't imagine not going there and seeing the wild horses and sleeping to the sound of the rolling waves!
Great Off-season activity

During the "off season" the odds of seeing ponies up close are much improved. Our visit on New Years Day resulted in viewing 14 different ponies. The visitor center-----which is before you reach the fee area---is well worth a stop and the rangers are very helpful.
Great Place to Visit

I visited Assateague Island National Seashore in December and it was wonderful. It was very cool seeing the wild horses and the beach was very nice. Also, I really enjoyed walking on the trails. I would definitely visit here if you are in the area.

This time the horses were not out on the marsh, but roadside which pleased my four year old. The personnel at the park were informative and took time to show myself and daughter some of the exhibits first hand.
Avoid the crowds. Beautiful in the winter.

We visited this location 3 different times over the week. We were able to drive slowly without backing up traffic allowing us to observe the wild ponies, deer and numerous waterfowl.
