Love it and will be back

During spring break, I took my daughter and niece to Assateague Island. unfortunately it rained and it was very cold for 2 days and they did not see any ponies. I went back the following week with my fiance, and we were able to see the ponies, deer, turtles and other interesting wildlife. I was also able to fly a kite on the beach for the first time. I will be going back this summer.

We camped right on the beach, it just don't get any better than that! While we were swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, the wild horses came running along the beach playing in the wind and the water. It was quite the site!

Ponies are wild and free!! But don't get too close or you will be bitten or kicked - seen this happen when I was there and didn't feel bad for the person one bit! Rangers and signs clearly state to stay your distance, no petting, or feeding. Always respect wild life. The family enjoyed our time here. Pet friendly areas, great camping opportunities and welcome center is nice. Enjoy!

It was raining in OC, not much we could do so we decided to check out Assateague. Very short drive. Was charged $15.00 to go and drive around and around with hopes of catching a glimpse. Walked down to the beach. On the way out, a car was stopped ahead of us. There in the far off distance was one lone horse. So, for $15. caught a glimpse of one but seen many, many piles of poop everywhere.
Fun Camping Trip

I went camping here last summer for one night. It was a lot of fun, and we saw a few horses. It is true that there are a lot of bugs, but if you just suck it up and bring some bug spray and maybe one of those clip on fan things, its not a big deal. One problem we had though, was the showers. I came in a big group of people, so when all of us tried to take showers at the same time, the pressure was very low. The water was practically dripping out of the faucet! Besides that it was a great trip. The next day, we visited a nearby water park called Jolly Roger.
