Other Great Outdoors
“For a small fee (15ish per car), you may enter Assateague Island. About halfway to the beach, there is a pull-off spot that looks out across the marsh. There are always ponies, at least in the distance. If you're lucky they will be right up along the road. Sometimes they hang out right at the ocean with the other beach lovers. ”

Beach
“One of the very few waterfront state parks in Maryland. You can rent a kayak or launch your own. All the water trails are well marked. You can also launch a boat, park your trailer and clean your fish here! Bring a picnic and have lunch under the pines. A good place for a shady bike ride too. They have activities open to the public during the summer season.”
