This is a great park with some considerations, there are no hookups except for the Host sites, no hot water at all even at showers, restrooms are clean but primitive. On the plus side, there are sites for every size unit even the biggest Riggs, all sites and roads are paved and your either on the ocean or the bay. Cell service was fair, of course there is no internet unless you have your own. TV reception on a boosted antenna was really great. Our price was with a National Park pass, which is half price. They are open year around, reservations can be made from mid April to mid Oct, otherwise first come first serve. I can say in the summer don't try without a reservation it will be FULL. We like the ocean side, less bugs and gen are permitted in all sites, bag side allows gen in A loop only. All rules are STRICTLY ENFORCED. Have fun We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park. Nice sites with fire rings. Only reason I didn't rate it higher was the high price for basic boondocking. No water, sewer, or electric at the sites. Water fill up at the entrance and also near the recycles. Beautiful ponies and easy access to a great beach. Plenty to do if you like bike riding, hiking and beach time. We would camp here again. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

Great place, nice paved sites that will accommodate any size rig. Our rate reflects a seniors National Park pass. We travel in a 40' fifth wheel with a generator. Very quiet with great walking and biking areas, not far to Ocean City area. Sites are very large with fire rings. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Fifth Wheel.

We booked the National Park because we could not get into the Maryland State Park. The campsite was on the bay side- and the bugs were bad. The park is very clean and nice, but it is a minimalist park- the bathrooms and showers are not as big and are not as nice as the Maryland State Park they are clean- but not fancy. Try to get oceanfront reservations- the prevailing winds are off the ocean and the bugs are not a problem on the Oceanside. I would however highly recommend this park. This place is a treasure. The National Park annual pass is a deal even if you are day visitor- with the pass you pay one price for any National Park entry for the year. We were in a motorhome so the bathrooms did not matter as much. The dumping station is easy access and not very busy (the neighboring state park the dump station had a waiting line). We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

Not much that I can add that hasn't been said before. Well run, friendly rangers, beautiful beach right over the dunes. Liked the visitor center, hated the occasional bug. Like the ponies, annoyed at times by the wind. Great dry camping. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Travel Trailer.

Thursday, Friday – June 28-29 Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. This is one of our favorite places to stay, just a dune away from the ocean. There are two loops near the ocean, plus tent sites in the sand and more loops on the Bayside of the park. We have never camped here in June when the flies come out. The Bayside Loops are not the place to be when they do. The Oceanside Loops have a nice breeze which controls them, but they are still there. This is just a beautiful park with wild horses that come into your site and on the beaches. Hiking, biking and windsurfing on the Bayside. We saw more horses than we do in April or May, because they are trying to get away from the flies by escaping to the main road, Oceanside Loops and the beach. It is a beautiful long beach with a public beach to the north of it and one to the south, but the section in front of the camping loop never really gets crowded. There are no hookups, but there is water, cold showers and clean pit toilets in each loop. We had a thunderstorm around ten last night for about an hour, so some of the tenters left this morning. Tenters need extra long stakes to stay here. It’s a great place to camp and it cost us $10 a night with a pass. Reservations can be made online on the recreation.gov website. Beautiful place and the wild horses just add to the whole atmosphere. Another park is just to the north of this park, so don’t confuse the two! We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

We were fortunate enough to enjoy this park off season with no bugs, insects or mosquitoes. Our Oceanside site was gorgeous! What a view! Day 3 we asked to be moved to the bayside and they accommodated us without a problem. The wind! Continous wind for 48 hours! You could feel the motorhome moving. Bayside site 45 gave us full protection and you'd never know there were high winds outside. We were able to do some biking and walk the different trails. All the sites are very spacious and afford privacy. We did see lots of ponies in and around the campground. The rangers were all happy and friendly. The visitor center is nice and the movie informative about the island and the ponies. The rest rooms were kept extremely clean even though I never saw anyone cleaning them! Hope to return someday. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 4 nights for our very first trip in our travel trailer in the Bayside loop. The sites are well maintained. All roads and sites are paved and in good condition. There is water and a dump station available as there are no hook ups. Flies and mosquitoes could be a problem here in the summer so we would only want to stay here in the spring or fall. We did not have any problem with either during our stay. We will be camping here again. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Travel Trailer.

This was our first experience at this park and I can assure you we will return. It is nature at its absolute best! The unspoiled beaches and wildlife rival anything we have experienced. The campground itself offers little to no amenities, but the openness, privacy, and good all-around feeling is worth the trip. We camped in Loop C bayside and found the site a very good fit for us. The rangers and other staff members we interacted with were friendly and happy people. Who wouldn't be working here? We were early enough in the season that bugs and insects weren't an issue. The ponies were all around us all weekend. Just one note or helpful hint: Study the campground maps very closely when choosing a site. All traffic in the loops is one-way and if you choose a drive-thru site on the wrong side of the road for your rig, you may find your door opening to the roadway rather than the picnic/patio area. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

Big sites right near the ocean and bay. You are parked in the dunes! Has great access to beach. We had extremely strong winds while here, but we managed. A short ride to Ocean City boardwalk, good bike paths and kayaking area in the marches. Strictly boondocking, no hookups. We liked this park.

Senior rate, still an outstanding value here. We stayed on the Ocean side again, site 40. A nice big back-in. Lots of fruit flies this time, so fly tape and bug spray are really needed here. We would come again. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

Wonderful place to stay in the off-season (when biting bugs are no longer a problem!). Lots of wildlife (ponies, deer, and even crabs wandering thru the campgrounds). Large, clean ocean beach just a few dozen yards away. Dogs are allowed on the beach near the campground loops. The bay side has some excellent kayak launches to explore the smaller marshland islands (where you're likely to see ponies grazing and swimming between the islands!). No hookups at sites, but there is a nice dump station with fresh water available. Entrance fee is $15 for 7 days and no extra fee is charged if pulling a towed vehicle. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the ocean side campground. It was nice and open. No shade. Short walk to the beach. We paid $20 per night but you also have to pay a park entrance fee. We paid $15 which was good for 7 days. Very big rig friendly with one minor exception. To register you have to pull into a parking lot which was not designed for big rigs towing a car. It's doable but a little tight. It was very easy to find wild horses and deer to photograph. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.

The staff there were all very friendly. The sites were all well taken care of. The only concern I had was all the horse crap all over the park. This was my first time camping there, and I will return again. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful park. We've been to some run-down national parks in the past, but this park is NOT. Very well-maintained grounds and sites--large, scenic, and level. We stayed in the Bayside Loop because it was windy and chilly and other reviewers suggested that this area was less windy. True. We had site 46--water view and very nice. And to have the wild ponies just walk by your site...priceless. Toilets are of the pit variety (but clean); showers are cold. But if you're set up for boon docking, this is the place. Lovely walks (dunes, forest, marsh), too. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore in a Motorhome.
