Horse lovers! How about hanging near one of two wild horse herds wandering across the hilly, marshy lands of Assateague Island National Seashore. Or why not bring your own horse and ride along the sandy shores up to your Equestrian Camp right off the beach?

Before going making a reservation is a good idea because the island is a very popular campsite, the horses really draw wildlife lovers in. There are plenty of bugs out at night so make sure to bring lots of bug spray. Camping on the beach is always a blast but make sure to protect your skin with a lot of sunblock it gets very hot.

Enjoying the sunriseMake sure to be awake and ready for the sunrises on the beach they are a beautiful site to seeMy adventure pups enjoying the water The beach is a great place to camp if your are a dog owner, they are allowed on the island
