Bayside & Oceanside Tent and RV Campgrounds

Assateague Island is an exceedingly popular camping destination, and not just for its proximity to Ocean City. In fact, many families camp on Assateague without even making a single trip to the boardwalk (although it is always a fun summer night excursion). Pitch your tent or park your RV among the wild ponies at Assateague’s National or State Park, which offer bayside and oceanside camping for big and small groups, as well as easy access to paddle boarding, kayaking, scenic hiking and bike trails and other recreational activities. More information is available on the  National Park Service website.
