Life on Assateague Island has adapted to an existence on the move. Explore sandy beaches, salt marshes, maritime forests and coastal bays. One of the most unique properties in the National Park System because of the wild ponies (over 300). The ponies free roam the seashore, roads and parking areas.
Information & Tips:
- $25.00 for a weekly vehicle pass. Valid for: Assateague Island National Seashore (MD) & Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge (VA).
- Wild ponies can be seen along the road ways and parking areas. Seem to like to hang out on the road side and just wander. Drive slow and give the space.
- Bring bug spray for hikes in the wooded area.
- Off season is a perfect time to see the ponies without the crowds.
