“Maryland's only oceanfront park”
Assateague State Park is Maryland's only oceanfront park. It is located on Assateague Island, a barrier island bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Sinepuxent Bay on the west. Its two miles of ocean beaches offer swimming, beachcombing, sunbathing, surfing and fishing. The bayside offers visitors the chance to explore secluded coves by canoe or kayak. The marsh areas have a variety of wildlife, including deer, waterfowl and feral horses.
The best time to go is in May. In May it's hot enough to get a tan but it's not miserable heat and there aren't many bugs. At this time, it's a super relaxing trip.
Yes, we saw "wild" ponies -- actually they were a plentiful nuisance. Very convenient beach access. Facilities include restrooms, hot showers, fish cleaning station, and dish washing.
