Enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean at Assateague Island.

Located off the Steven Decatur Highway (State Route 611), this barrier island features Maryland's only oceanfront state park. There are two miles of sandy beach, which is perfect for visitors who like fishing, surfing, and swimming. You can also venture further via kayak or canoe to see secluded coves nearby. Wildlife you may see in the marshy area includes deer, wild horses, and various birds. Over 200 bird species have been spotted here, including herons, egrets, seagulls, snowy owls, eagles, ducks, and osprey. Feel free to take pictures of the wildlife during your visit.

While the horses may seem harmless, it is against park rules to approach, touch, or feed any of the wild horses. There are over 50 horses in the local herd, and they often graze in the marshlands. For your safety and theirs, stay at least 40 feet away from the wildlife at all times. Public access to the beach is available daily. Hours are 7 am to sunset. Please note that pets are allowed here only during the off-season, from Labor Day up until Memorial Day. Keep an eye out for dolphins swimming in the ocean. This top-rated state park is definitely worth a visit.
