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.

Nice November afternoon watching the ponies walk up and down the beach. There is an honor box ($5) to park that goes toward maintenance of facilities. I want to come back in summer!! more »
Assateague is beautiful and much better than I expected. We came up here to spend on the beach mid afternoon til evening. Beach was very clean and sand was very soft. Least going in September beach wasn't crowded at all. Having a fire on the beach was great too. Seeing the wild horses was very cool to see. Highly recommend if you are ever in the area.
Loved the breeze..openness. the experience was great. We liked the cleanliness of the bathrooms and the proximity to our camp site. We could easily access beach and bathrooms at night without fear. The place is safe. A good family place.
