We camped on the bayside-Site 13 A loop (generators allowed). No hookups. Large site and not far from the bathrooms. You are not far from the ocean (walking distance) but drive if taking a lot of stuff. Clean large showers (only cold water). Large, clean bathrooms (vault). Lots of mosquitoes but we had a screened in tent we sat in. Horses walked through our campground numerous times. The only bad part was the septic was full when we went to dump on our way out. Had to drive over to the ocean side to dump. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Superlative. Our best camping experience ever. The beach, the ocean waves, the horses, the birds. We even saw a seal sunning himself on the sand. We saw horses every day. The sites are very spacious, water and trash close by. Cannot see the ocean but you can hear the surf just over the dunes. We stayed one night on the bay side, where you can see the water, which was shallow and warm. But the bay side is very buggy, you will need repellent. The park rangers were fabulous, very friendly and willing to chat and answer all your questions. The "Pony Patrol" shows up with the horses to keep everyone safe - despite this, people manage to get bitten or kicked by being stupid. So don't be stupid. Also, put your food or anything that will even seem to be food to a horse (soap) away if you leave during the day. We saw two campsites raided by horses because people left things out.

April was a pretty good time to visit here. No bugs; decent weather. But it was windy the whole time, and when it rained and was cold (one day) it was pretty miserable. Be prepared.

Lovely stay Easter Weekend at the park. It was during the visit the National Parks for free weekend so as we traveled south we decided to take advantage of the fee free weekend. Nice view of the bay even though we were on the inner loop and the horses came right on our site. Our fisherman caught 8 Rock fish (Striped Bass) on the bay side. Great Easter sunrise service at the State Park. Our Verizon coverage and hot spot worked well. The major drawback for the weekend was the lack of sanitary facilities being open. The campground was full, however, the toilet facility in our loop A only had one "hole" open. The other doors were locked. Not a problem for us because we brought our own but we saw tenter's taking toilet paper into the bushes. If the park is open for business, the toilet facilities should be available for the crowd that showed up. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Motorhome.

There are 2 sections to the campground - beach and cove. We chose cove as we travel with a dog and wanted grass for him to run on. Sites are paved and back ins. Some sites overlook the marsh / cove, but there are great views no matter which site you take. The toilets are pit toilets but they were fairly clean. The area is teaming with wildlife - one evening we had 3 deer and 2 horses grazing in the grass behind our rig. Just watch your step because there is poo everywhere. All sites are without services, but there are dump stations on both loops with potable water. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Truck Camper.

We stayed on the bay side, expecting to be eaten alive by the infamous mosquitos. Actually, it wasn't bad. There were bugs but a liberal application of OFF! seems to hold them at bay.
The site we had was A6, in the generator loop. We only ran our genset for battery charging and coffee and microwave use. Be aware that the NPS does NOT enforce the noisy generator rule (can't be over 60 decibels at 55' from campsite or something to that effect), there was a guy clear on the far side of the campground with one of those cheap construction type generators that ran it ALL DAY LONG, until 10pm. It was very loud and distracting.
The site was more or less level and asphalt paved. It backed up to the tree line which was nice.
"Wild" horses cruise throughout the campground at will. They like to hang out around the bath house for some reason.
We did not use the cold water showers or the pit toilet bathrooms.
All in all we enjoyed our 4 night stay, the beach is wonderful. You can rent kayaks bayside or sign up for a kayak tour.
I would have given this a 10 star rating if the rangers or camp host had enforced the generator noise rule.
Price reflects 50% NPS Senior Pass rate. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is an amazing experience. The beaches are super... It's important to note if you haven't been here that there are no hook ups ! Generators are used heavily. We used ours and many people used theirs. There are generator free loops available. I can't say generator usage bothered us and given the hot weather we experienced while there I don't blame anyone for using one. They must be shut down at 10 PM and may resume at 6 AM. The park is very large and it's easy to find seclusion and quiet areas. There is a visitors center prior to entering the park. (This is not the check in office). Also, there is a second park within the large park operated by the State of Maryland. They have a similar campground too and both the federal park and the state park basically share the same roads and beaches. You will see the wild horses and experience nature... bring your bikes!

We had a beautiful site with excess to the bay side for swimming & kayaking. Interior roads and sites that we noticed were asphalt. All sites are dry. Bathhouses very clean but only cold running water for showers. Pit toilets only. Horses & deer make frequent visits. Park rangers make routine patrols. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. Bayside campsites has more small tree growth which offer some shade. Good signal on our Verizon. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean park. Bathrooms were clean, but primitive (only pit toilets). Showers were clean but only cold water (which actually feels great, considering you will likely get sunburned at the lovely beach!).

Sites were kept clean, though watch for the horse poo. Wild horses roam free around the park, but are not a nuisance provided you keep your food put away and watch what you cook when they are near.

Some sites are bigger than others, but all should accommodate larger rigs. Roads are all paved.

The park is minutes from Ocean City, Md. The park also has two beaches, which are kept clean and family friendly.

Zero hookups at this park.

Would definitely come back! We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Tent Trailer.

$25 with pass $12.50 but might be going up. This NPS campground has always been one of my favorites and on our recent three week camping trip from RI to NC we stopped for two days going down and two days coming back. The campground is divided into the Ocean Loop sections, Bayside and the tenting among the dunes. Bayside is beautiful in the spring and fall and very buggy during the summer. Oceanside is great for all the seasons but can get very windy during storms. Your site is one dune away from a beautiful ocean beach. There are no services but upgraded pits and cold showers. This is camping on a barrier island with kayaking, biking, nature hikes, beachcombing and an OSV zone. The wild horses and there are about 94 of them roam free all over this park including in your campsites and on the ocean. As the weather gets warmer you will see more of them near the Oceanside. Tenters need extra long stakes. It is so nice to wake up hearing the waves crashing on the beach. There is a visitor center as you drive onto the island with an excellent movie about the horses. A Maryland State Park with camping and some electric sites is located just before you enter the National Seashore. NPS entrance fees apply but the Golden Age pass gets you in free and with 50% off camping. This is an enjoyable camping experience. Reservations for the Oceanside Loops especially on weekends are needed! The days we were there we spotted dolphins and kite surfers moving from north to south in the ocean. Great place except when there are storms. We camped at Assateague Island National Seashore Campground in a Motorhome.

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 Campground 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.

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 Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

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 Campground in a Travel Trailer.
