Wild Pony Island - Camp on the shores of an island inhabited by wild ponies!


DID YOU EVER DREAM YOU COULD SPEND THE
WEEKEND LIVING WITH WILD PONIES?

 

Well it’s time to follow your dream and
live an exceptional life!

Permanently uninhabited by humans, spend a weekend on an island living as mere guests of hundreds of wild ponies! Your personal, professional Bucket List Bunch guide has made all the arrangements! We’ll be going to Assateague Island where these creatures live! This unique location is only 5 hours away from Fairfield, CT but you’ll feel worlds away from the
suburban hub-bub and daily grind of life!! As soon as I heard about this once in a lifetime
experience, I KNEW I HAD to cross it off my Bucket List!!

“You'll have pictures not to be believed with these horses hanging out a few feet from your picnic table.” ~Trip Advisor

By day, we can enjoy two miles of ocean beaches that offer swimming, beachcombing, sunbathing, surfing, fishing, crabbing, and clamming. The weather might not be warm enough to swim without wetsuits but not to worry! There will be plenty to do and explore or just enjoy the white-sand beaches and relax. The marsh areas have a variety of wildlife, including deer, waterfowl and wild horses!! We have the option to explore as we wish. We may do a kayak trip amongst the horses or we can climb the 198 steps for a terrific view from atop Assateague Island Lighthouse built in 1867. The world is our oyster!

By night, we will be camping under the stars on the shores of this island lulled to sleep by the ocean waves. Each campsite can host up to 6 people, 3 tents, and 2 cars. DON’T WAIT! THERE ARE ONLY SIX SPOTS AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME AND ONLY TWO MORE CAMPSITES LEFT IN THE PARK IF WE WANT TO BOOK ANOTHER SITE!! Bucket Listers will be sharing tents and carpooling or park in the overflow lot. Each campsite has a fire pit, picnic table, and is located in the dunes, steps away from the beach. The campground has hot water showers, toilets, large sinks, and a limited supply store. We'll share the responsibility of food and feast like kings on our famous potluck picnics! Bring Frisbees, camp games, take in the beautiful sights that surround you, and JUST RELAX!! So dig out that old camping gear you bought on a whim and put some use to it!

And don’t forget! You’ll have your very own personal, professional Bucket List Bunch guide with you 24/7 to help you have an exceptional experience!

WHAT TO BRING

  • Make sure to bring tent stakes that are extra-long (10-12”) to secure your tent in the sandy soil and wind.
  • Bring extra warm gear/sleeping bags/clothes for possibly chilly October nights. A wetsuit if you want to enjoy swimming or surfing if the  water is chilly.
  • There is no shade on the island so if you’re not a sun lover you may want sunscreen, a canopy, and/or umbrella.
  • BUG SPRAY WITH DEET!! It has been stressed more than anything during my research that this is an absolute necessity.
  • Camping gear or find someone to share with that has a tent. Remember, there are only 3 tents allowed per site so that means at least two to a tent. HAVING A TENT ALL TO YOURSELF WILL MOST LIKELY NOT BE AN OPTION
  • The fire rings don’t all have grates so we’ll need people to bring a grill or two.
  • Food to share for all meals starting from dinner on Friday to breakfast on Monday. There is a limited camp store on site that sells ice but there is also a supermarket nearby.
  • The consumption or possession of an open container of an alcoholic beverage will be prohibited in all Assateague State Park areas with the exception of interior areas of motorhomes.
  • Your Bucket List Bunch guide will take care of the first 10 bundles of wood. If we need more we’ll need everyone to pitch in. Wood is sold at the park and other local areas but WOOD CANNOT BE BROUGHT IN FROM OUTSIDE THE COUNTY.
  • Camp chairs, beach chairs, outdoor games, bikes, towels, anything else that might make your stay more comfortable and fun.

ARE THE HORSES REALLY THERE? YES!!! THEY ARE WILD AND WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THEY WILL BE PRESENT BUT THE CHANCES ARE EXTREMELY HIGH!!

  • "The horses are beautiful and nosey. They've evolved to being able to open coolers, bags, etc. and don't shy away from joining you for any given meal. Put your food in your vehicle. It's true. Don't feed them. They're wild. They will bite, but do enjoy the view and company. We loved watching them while we made breakfast."~ Trip Advisor
  • "DO NOT touch, feed or entice the horses or deer no matter how tempted you are (they are really cute and SEEM docile and they will walk right up to you, so it is tempting). These are wild animals and should be left wild. The do bite, kick and charge and can be unpredictable. Also, feeding them trains them to become dependent on humans and hang around near the road where they can get hit by cars. Make sure you secure your food. Keep coolers and all food locked in your camper or car. The ponies CAN get into coolers and packages. I witnessed a pony get an unopened package of Oreos out of someone's beach bag, open the package, get the plastic sleeve out and then eat the cookies without eating any of the packaging. They are masters of getting to junk food." ~ Trip Advisor
  • Assateague’s horses are beautiful, tough, and wild. They have learned to survive in a harsh environment. Feeding and/or petting them is detrimental to both visitors and horses.
  • Horses can get sick from human food.
  • Horses that learn to come up to the road to beg for food are often hit and killed by cars.
  • Visitors are kicked, bitten, and knocked down every year as a direct result of getting too close to the wild horses.
  • Treating wild horses like tame animals takes away the wildness that makes them special.
  • Protect your family by respecting theirs. Give the horses the space they need to be wild.

FAQ’S AND OTHER THINGS TO KNOW

  • Kids are more than welcome! We are an ALL ARE WELCOME AND ACCEPTED GROUP!
  • There are flushing toilets and hot showers
  • Alcohol and pets are not allowed
  • You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the island but Bucket Listers are great about carpooling. So post your location in our comments section if you’re interested in carpooling.
  • Quiet time is 10 pm to 7 am
  • Generator use is prohibited during quiet hours, 10 pm to 7 am. Outside of quiet hours, generators must be operated at a sound level that is not annoying to other park users. Failure to comply may result in a citation.

Fees will only be refunded if we cancel or reschedule the event. RSVP'ing YES releases Bucket List Bunch LLC from any liability and you cannot sell, transfer, or give your space to another person. RSVP'ing NO relinquishes your space and any fees paid.

MORE ABOUT ASSATEAGUE: Known for its herds of charismatic wild ponies and pristine beaches, Assateague Island is a beautiful 37 mile long barrier island off the coast of Maryland and Virginia. With the breaking ocean on one side and beautiful marshlands on the other, it boasts the perfect outdoor playground for humans and horses alike! Permanently
uninhabited by humans, we will be mere guests of these hundreds of wild ponies.

How the wild ponies arrived at Assateague hundreds of years ago is still a mystery. Some believe the ponies swam ashore, arriving on Assateague Island during a Spanish galleon shipwreck that sank off the beach during the 16th century. Others believe during the 17th century free-roaming horses, cows, sheep and pigs caused expensive crop damage to local farms. Farmers were required to pay taxes on all mainland livestock and fence them in. Like people in the 21st century, these resourceful coastal residents looked for ways to avoid paying this tax. They turned to nearby Assateague Island with its abundance of food, shelter and a natural “corral” made of water to solve their problem.

The Assateague horses drink over twice the amount of water that domesticated horses will due to their salty food supply. All that drinking combined with a high salt diet contributes to their bloated appearance.

To catch the ever popular pictures of the ponies walking by the surf, the ponies favorite beach times are early morning around sunrise, late afternoon, and sunset. Around mid-Day, the ponies are more easily found either by the road, poking around the campsites, or a little less often on the marsh side of the island. Ponies seem to love to go in the middle of the road after dark.

    I think this trip was amazing regardless of the weather. The rain was never a downpour except in the wee hours of the night when we were sleeping. The wind was a bit of a nuisance but we held strong. All worth the great camaraderie of you wonderful Bucket Listers, the amazing food, the beautiful setting, the roar of the ocean, and those gorgeous ponies! Charismatic is the perfect word to describe them LOL. I can't wait to do it again!!!

      October 10, 2013

  • Melinda ".

    We're now down to site F06. Since many people have cancelled their reservations there is more availability and there may be a better site. So when I get there I am going to ask them if there is a better site to camp at under the conditions. If we change sites, I'll post it here.

    October 10, 2013

  • Michael

    Ok I am just going to throw my 2 cents in and it's just an opinion. If it's as bad as they are going to say then we will be setting all this up in the rain. It's going to cost us probably a few hundred more since I am sure we are not going to cook in the rain so we will be eating out everyday. The food we are bringing will go bad and for the next 3 days all we can really do is sit in the tent. Not sure how we are going to see the Ponies in that kind of weather which really defeats the purpose of our trip. Not only do we have to worry about the rain but we have to also think about the wind as it will be much more windy on the beach. Tarps may be blown down or away. We also have to think about packing in the rain. Keep in mind everything will be soaked. In the End we will have wasted food time and money all to see ponies that we really cant see or enjoy. I'm not really going there to site see in the rain either.

    1 · October 9, 2013

    • Paty

      Yes honey if you really don't want to go its okay I will cancel too. Since I don't have anyone to carpool with me.

      October 10, 2013

    • Michael

      Thank's Mindy but I'm going regardless. I've packed and I'm committed. No turning back now unless this turns into a hurricane. See you there!

      October 10, 2013

  • Margaret

    For those brave souls remaining: does anyone have carpool space? I am in Western MA, so I know I'll need to drive to you, but would love to ride with someone from there. Thanks for any input :-D

    October 10, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      If you can get to me tonight you can ride with me

      October 10, 2013

    • Margaret

      By what time do you need me there?

      October 10, 2013

  • Melinda ".

    Anyone have any deet? I'd rather not have to buy some. Also THERE ARE NO TREES where we are so if you were planning on tying something to a tree like a tarp it probably won't be an option. Don't forget extra long tent stakes too for the sandy soil and windy conditions

    Hey Guys, I just went to the Weather underground, which i have used for years and find very reliable, It now has friday at 60 percent chance of rain not 90 ,,,, sat at 40 percent, clearing sunday overcast, with possible sun in afternoon and monday the same.... It is looking like storm is moving out faster than expected and it looks brighter for the camping trip.

    Hi guys. I have officially decided to cancel. The wet weather and camping for first time aren't the ideal combo for me. I wish everyone who decides to solider on this weekend a wonderful trip. Special thanks to Margaret and Jeff for your generosity with offers to share your equipment and carpooling.

    A lot can change with the forecast between now and the end of the weekend. Last weekend I was in PA and they were calling for rain on Sunday all week and it turned out to be 80 and sunny. Accuweather's forecast for Friday night looks nasty, but for Saturday it doesn't look completely awful and who knows about Sunday.

    1 · October 9, 2013

    • Brian

      Just checked the Saturday forecast is calling for a high of 69, cloudy and a 25% chance of rain during the day, which at this point doesn't sound bad

      2 · October 9, 2013

  • Melinda ".

    Hi Bucket Listers,

    I've been reading your comments and am sensitive to the issue. The trip is still on. If you wish to cancel, you must change your RSVP to a NO by 12:00 PM tomorrow October 10, 2013 and you will be issued a partial refund of $85.

    I hope this helps.

    Sorry about the weather forecast guys but remember...meteorologist is one of the only professions where you can get it all wrong on a regular basis and keep your job!

    What type of cooking gears do we have so far? Anyone bringing a propane stove? Looks like Pat+Michael has FRI nite covered... If I know what cooking gears we have, I can help suggest meals... I just came back from a camping trip west with 20 people in a hippie bus, and we shared cooking through the trip...

    October 6, 2013

    • Margaret

      I don't have a stove, but I do have a cast iron dutch oven and large skilled. These are good for use directly over a fire. The 2-3 people per meal is a good idea. I can be part of one of the dinners (Sunday?) and two lunches.

    So here's the scoop on the kayak trip. The trip we were going to take launches within the National Seashore which is closed down. We could do another trip but it would be on the mainland side and we wouldn't necessarily see ponies. Let me know what you guys think.

    October 7, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      We can probably wing it. It's about $50 and it's just the marsh area in the bay

      October 7, 2013

    • Melinda ".

      yes they provide life vests and it depends whether we do a tour or just rent the yaks as to whether there is a guide or not

      October 7, 2013

    Oh I forgot to put this in the experience description. We will be on sandy ground. I highly recommend bringing a dust pan and broom as many trip advisor people suggested it to sweep out your tent.

    I am in Middletown NY, I have a 4 man tent that really sleeps 2 comfortably. I have a bunch of new camping equipment that I have used once this year. I can Carpool if you can get to me but I have a small compact car and can only carry limmited equipment. If anyone would like to carpool let me know, Since I have limited space I will only be able to take one rider with all my equipment.
