Beach camping on Assateague Island
Columbus day weekend, Oct 8-11 (Fri-Mon). Check in to the campground anytime after 2pm Friday.

Join the group as they head to the Beach for a Fall Campout on the Beach.
See wild horses stroll thru the campsites and drive over to Ocean City which is just minutes away. You can even Rent Kayaks and take a bay-side tour or JUST RELAX... $54/person for the entire long weekend. But if two people are able to share a car and share a tent, just reserve one slot and pay $54 for the two people. (Add in the comment field that you have two people.)

No pets allowed. (The J-loop camping that allows pets seems to be fully booked.)

PAID Attendees:
1. Christine $54
2. JJ $108
3. Jill $54
4. Tim $54

The reservation is with the Assateague Maryland State Park:
http://www.dnr.state....
The reservation is for Loop B, sites 19/21/23. (More sites can be added.)

They can allow four cars and three tents and six people per site.
So the cars and tents are the limitation. (There is a parking overflow area if there are too many cars.)

I will identify who gets which specific site once we figure out the final attendance, based on who really sends in payments. We can arrange for carpools and other details once we know who is coming definitively. The MD state park has nice bath-house facilities, with hot water showers and real flush toilets (vs the primitive National park facilities).

    Fun people and we totally lucked out on the weather. We were lucky enough to have three beautiful beach days.

    This was a GREAT place to camp. We had everything we needed and the weather was perfect. We had visits from the wild ponies, ghost crabs and "some say" UFOs .... I definitely want to do this event again! Ocean City boardwalk was fun, the seafood and Saturday night cookout was good too. Thanks Kit!

    For anyone that can't do this weekend due to prior plans, drop me a line as I will be going the weekend after for camping/Jeep offroading (or oversanding as some call it)/etc. Cheers, Lori - [masked]

    Hi. OK, there are a lot of lurkers/commenters who haven't rsvped/paid. The Assateague campground is filling up. I don't want to book additional sites if I don't get the registrations here. I'm worried about getting rsvp's and then not being able to book the campsite. I'm going to close the rsvp's on Friday (or sooner if the campground fills), so please make a decision before then. (The new sites will be in the I loop. Current sites are in the B loop. Sorry they won't be together.) Thanks. Kit.

    I am interested... [toss up with the Gauley rafting trip]. I would like to share a tent with another female & offer to drive.

    I'd like to join, but I don't drive. :/ Anyone interested in a passenger? I live and work in DC, but probably any metro stop would work.

    Two of us are very interested but are concerned about the horrendous traffic returning on Monday. Is there a provision to remain at Assateague Monday evening and return on Tuesday?
