Maryland's only oceanfront park, Assateague State Park hosts water and land activities. Many come to watch the wild horses along the shallow waters of the marsh, and try to spot various bird species and red foxes. Hike or bicycle on trails along the edge of the marshland for wildlife viewing. Trails also lead past Rackliffe House, an 18th-century plantation that has been restored to its former glory. Beaches, camping, and fishing will keep you busy near the shore. To visit Assateague State Park and other attractions in Berlin, use our Berlin tour itinerary planner .

  • I've been to both sides of the island and each has benefits. Honestly, I found the MD side to be more natural and accessible. GO! You won't regret it.  more »
  • Was able to see the wild horses from a distance. some of the area we could not get to as it was reserved for campers  more »

  • This is a must see place if you visit Ocean City. Only took us about 13 minutes to get there from Ocean City and was well worth it. We spotted and photographed several of the famous wild ponies that inhabit the island. Be sure and stop at the visitor's center and watch the two short documentary movies about the island's history and the other about the ponies that have inhabited the island for over 300 years. What a great place to visit!
  • There is a museum you must visit on the way into the park on the right. It explains a lot about the horses and park history. In season they have a small restaurant and camp store. There is camping available. The horses are beautiful and use to people. Don't be surprised if one comes up to you on the beach!
