Maryland's only ocean park is located on Assateague Island, a barrier island bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by Sinepuxent Bay. Two miles of ocean beaches offer swimming, beachcombing, sunbathing, surfing and fishing. The island's bayside offers canoeing to secluded coves. The marsh areas have a variety of wildlife, including deer and feral horses. Assateague was selected by National Geographic Travel magazine in 1994 as one of the 10 best state parks in the United States. This is a Maryland State Park.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 30 Wonderful Experience
Just returned from our camping trip to Assateague, had such a wonderful time. The horses and the beaches are beautiful, such an amazing experience to see wild ponies roaming through your campsite in the mornings. The beach is clean and secluded, amazing, one of my new favorite places! Already planning our return for next year.
June 30 Relaxing and fun! by In-love with this park
I went with children and grandchildren and we absolutely LOVE IT!!!
August 22 My Favorite Vacationing Spot
My husband, friends, and I go to the island and camp on the beach at least once a year. This is a great place to go to spend quality time with friends and family. I would recommend it to anyone looking for car camping with fishing, biking, and boating/kayaking near by!
