beach side parking space on Assateague island

I have heard that there is no more beach side parking in the park. If someone visited the place recently I would appreciate your comment on the issue. We are planning our annual summer time trip there but a bit concerned whether parking would be available. Thanks in advance.

Hi - no changes have been made - all 961 parking spaces are still available this year. There have been contentious discussions regarding plans to move the lots or replace them with an off-site lot and shuttle service - this has not happened yet and is currently only a possibility. You can see more info and see what you might do to help at this website:

My husband was at the beach on Wednesday and saw the lots being prepared for our summer visitors - so you can plan your trip and remember to bring sun screen and mosquito repellant!
