Lots to do and the water could be warm enough to take a dip. We used to go years ago then had a hiatus but started coming back 2 years ago. Area around the island has grown so be prepared for more traffic & Tourists. We have been using the National park but either one is fine. Gas up on Rt. 50 between rt.113 & rt. 611, more competition (including a Wawa) up there, so lower prices.
As Crabman said, support your local Crabbers and fishermen. Couple of fresh seafood markets between the island and OC area, just past the OC Airport. If you make a right on Sunset ave off rt. 611, you will be in the Harbor area. Went to Martin's Fish market last year right in the harbor where the Fishing boats dock. We walked out with local live Crabs, live clams, various fresh caught fish, scallops, etc. and it cost us around $30.00. Made multiple great meals. There are 3 or 4 Seafood restaurants there also.
And if you are into craft brews, try the Burley Oak in Berlin right off rt 113. Only about 13 miles from the island. Great selection of beers. Ask about their "Secret Sauce".

Thanks RSerendipity, great write up. And I am most certainly into craft brews. Martin's sounds great, I'm getting hungry already haha.

Is there a good place to fill up the fresh water tank on the way in the park? I'm coming from Pittsburgh and have no desire to haul 40+ gallons the whole way.

We like going to Crabs To Go in Berlin for our crab fix to take back to the site.

sebring96hbg, thanks for the tip, will certainly put on our list for our next trip. Wow, Crabs & Brews in one location for a quick off-island trip. Sounds like the beginning of a great night!
fragmag, Both campgrounds have multiple faucets before your site, so you can fill up then. Water pressure is normally good so it will be a fast fill-up

As for the Ponies, you never know what to expect. Last year's trip we were on the Beach @ the beginning of the OSV in the National Park & watched a Pony stand still for over an hour staring into the sea. He was about 75 yards away from us and 10 yards from the water. We thought he was a Statue, only his tail moved occasionally. Then the last night, 3 Ponies came to our campfire while we were sitting there. They stood next to the fire, downwind in the smoke, for about 10-12 minutes. then they moved on.


Enjoy your trip.

Enjoy your trip.

Two years ago, we camped in oceanside loop 1, we walked past site #9 by the boardwalk and saw a group of people hanging out by the campfire. An hour later, the same people were in the road looking at about a half dozen horses laying down around their campfire. It seems they like s'mores too!

There is a fresh water fill in the main parking lot, by the office. You can refill water jugs (or run a hose to a water bladder) at any of the bathhouses, or on the opposite side of the dump station loop.

Just got back from Assategue and we really had a great time. The weather was perfect the whole trip. Lot's of horses roaming around and not a ton of other campers. Probably due to the fact we camped during the week instead of the weekend. Couple of pics I snapped.







Only had a few complaints about the park, 1: there are not very many electric hook ups! Wasn't a big deal since we bought a honda generator. But, 2: only 1 dump station for 350 camp sites? You should have seen the line to use it! Yeah, anyways, we left and dumped at a site close to home. Other than that than, this place is great. 20 minutes from ocean city. Had some awesome crabs from some local restaurants, and the night sky view was amazing. Highly recommend it!

Is H Loop the only loop with electric? I don't think we will have any water issues since we can carry 88 Gallons of water in the FW tank. When is the best time to go?

Yes H loop is the only electric loop. It is very hard to book a site in that loop even a year in advance.
