Beautiful and peaceful

My family and I spent a fantastic day. If you love nature, conservation, and animals - you must go here!! Stop at the visitor's center on the way in, and talk to one of the park rangers to help you plan your trip. We walked on the Marsh trail, which was absolutely beautiful, and then spent the rest of the day on the beach. We were rewarded by seeing several horses take a swim and walk on the beach. The park was less than an hour from the Rehoboth Beach area. My 8 year old has not stopped talking about it since we left about 4 days ago. Advice to make the most out of your trip - bring lunch in with you, as the food service is really only snacks. Go and enjoy!!

A must-stop for anybody that loves wildlife and in participial horses but I must admit that the beach are as close as perfect as I have seen in my life. We spent a day ion here but we could have spent a lot more time chasing horses and bathing in the sun. The only thing you have to be careful is bugs and ticks as there is quite a bit of both in here.
Worth the trip

Went to this beautiful beach for the first time this summer. It is worth the drive, and not as far as it seemed from Glen Burnie. Beautiful views, close up encounters with wild ponies and a great beach!!!! What a way to spend the day!

Our family has visited this park for over 25 years!! The beaches are nice and not so crowded. Surf fishing is always good and icing on the cake is a chance to see the wild ponies! We had the pleasure of seeing one of this year's ponies and it's Mom.
