“Love it here!”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

I have now seen the island in all four seasons, and I love them all! If you're a horse lover, this island is a must. Beautiful trails, clean beach, and nice visitor centers.

“You can walk far away from the madding crowd”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The civilized part is that Assateague Island is easy to get to. You just drive across the bridge from Chincoteague Island and you enter another world, so near but so far from the things of man. The wild part is when you are walking north along the beach and not seeing another human being for miles, just the dancing birds and shifting sand and blue sky and rolling ocean. Or as Keats wrote, "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever."

“Amazing”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

We have been staying at Maddox Campground for many years & love it so much that I want to leave my camper there permanately. The shore is an amazing 2 mile drive from the campground & we never miss a sunrise or sunset. Driving the loop, all the amazing birds that seem to pose for pics., the sitka deer, lighthouse, & the beautiful wild ponies: I would love to spend my retirement here. From fine dining & the worlds best she crab soup, to cooking fresh seafood at the campsite, this is simply the most peaceful place in the world.

Everyone congregates at this beach in the summer especially on the weekends lots of locals come in. The beach is clean, very large, and dolphins can be seen frequently in season swimming by everytime we are there. !!

“Great day out”

The views are amazing the trails are great for walking and for bikes. If you come to see the horses then be prepared that they are good at hiding!
