Beach camping in Maryland guide

Overview

With thousands of miles of shoreline along the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, Maryland offers dozens of beaches for outdoor lovers to enjoy, and even some public beach camping options. Pitch your tent near the surf at Assateague State Park and Assateague Island National Seashore near Berlin and choose from drive-in and walk-in bayside and oceanside sites. This barrier island shared with Virginia is known for its wild horses and wild ponies, a big contrast from the resort amenities found in Ocean City just to the north. Camp near a Chesapeake Bay beach at Point Lookout State Park or Janes Island State Park to enjoy easy water access, or head to Elk Neck State Park to go camping near a riverfront beach. You can also enjoy beach camping at private campgrounds and RV parks, with options that span tent campsites, RV sites with hookups, and sites with amenities like picnic tables, swimming pools, camp stores, and wifi.
