The vibe at Assateague Campground
Drop some Assateague Campground knowledge on us.
What's better than beach camping with wild horses?!? This review is for the Assateague Island STATE park as there is a big difference ... bath houses with warm showers!
The park and facilities are well maintained and always clean. Great breezes off of the water make beach camping tolerable as there is no shade to be found anywhere, so be prepared to bring canopys to hide from the relentless sun. There is 1 loop that has electricity but, I've been camping here for years and have never been able to score a campsite with electricity (its nearly impossible).
Must book early (like a year in advance) if you want to camp as it is a highly visited park.
The park rangers host daily events that are family friendly and educational.
Amazing facilities - clean, well-lit, and warm water in the sinks and showers (free, not coin-op). Lots of horses wandering around, so make sure to not leave any food out. Plenty of beautiful beach expanses to relax and wander, and there's some great kayaking in the area. Booking weekends are tough if you don't plan in advance!
