o Check-in starts at 12pm. Check-out is at 11am. There is a vehicle fee per car that is payable at the main gate when you arrive. Carpool is encouraged

o Campers MUST check-in and register your car at the Ranger Station upon arrival. There is a limit of 10 vehicles permitted in the group site lot; however, if there are no spaces available, additional parking is available at the Ranger Station. All campers are REQUIRED to possess a valid entrance pass and to display a campground parking permit at all times.

o Quiet hours are from 10pm to 6am.

o These are tent-only, nonelectric, walk-in campsites. Each site has picnic tables and an outdoor grill. If you have a portable grill, bring it! It is better to have an extra grill than waiting for your turn. Unfortunately, generators are not allowed.

o There is a bathhouse with shower facilities and (very clean) portable toilets. Basic list: shampoo, soap, towel, toothbrush/paste, deodorant, etc...

o Assateague National Park has designated nature trails, bike lanes, and areas available for kayaking/canoeing. Bring your gear!

o If you are planning to bring an air mattress bed, don't forget the air pumps.

o Friendly dogs are WELCOME and must be on a leash at all times!

o Open fires are allowed on the beach at night. Woods must be purchased around the area.

o Insects are usually not a problem in October, but this is Assateague, so don’t take chances. Bring insect repellent with Deet.

o These are sandy campsites. Bring long tent stakes (extras are nice to have) and stakes hammer.

o If you have a portable radio, bring it!

o This is a National Park so alcohol is legal. BYOB! Keep food in containers and must store in a latchable hand-sided cooler; wild ponies roam freely on the island and at night.

o Bring warm, layered clothing for evenings - it gets cold.

Basic lists: sunblock/sunscreen, tent, tarp, screen house, canopy, lounge folding chairs, sleeping bags, flashlight, headlights, lantern, matches, trash bags, paper towels, travel games/game cards, extra batteries, cooler.

Please feel free to call or email me (before the event since cell phone service is no bueno!) if you need guidance on what to bring or if you need gear or have extra gear that you can share. The following websites may help if you'd like more information:
