Assateague State Park Campground Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Not to be confused with Assateague Island National Seashore, Assateague State Park is run by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. In what’s an oft-quoted boast, National Geographic Traveler selected Assateague State Park as one of the ten best state parks in America.
Assateague State Park is the only ocean park in the state parks system, hemmed in by the Atlantic on one side and Sinepuxent Bay on the other, located on Assateague Island. Those who have been camping here for decades can remember the days when the campsites were in full view of the ocean. That is no longer the case, but it’s for a very good reason: massive erosion. The dunes have been restored; while they cut off the view (there are paths between dunes), the restoration was essential for the fragile ecosystem the park hosts."
