Assateague Island National Seashore - Bayside Drive-in Campground
The gentle waters make it ideal for families with toddlers who want to play in the water without safety concerns of strong waves and rough currents. Several picnic tables surround the recreation area for beachgoers to relax and to have lunch. While at Bayside, explore the private waterway by kayak or canoe since its calmer water makes it easier for paddlers to get around. Bicycle rentals are also available at Bayside, and you can bring fishing supplies because visitors are allowed to fish in the recreation area.
Best for: Families with small children and kayaking
Pit toilets, showers that are a little frightening to look at, but they function and are cleaned daily . I should specify this is at the Bayside campsites. Today I looked at the Oceanside, and they have very nice toilets and shower brand new it looks like.
Lots of space between the sites that doesn’t help the generator noise.
Some of the sites look out over the bay others do not. Some of them are quite large.
In general, I wish the national park service would do away with this generous allotment of time for people to run those machines. Thank you for listening to me vent!
I enjoy the ponies. I have to leave my campsite to hear the birds. There’s plenty of space to walk your dog and you can take your dog on the beach on a leash. There are certain areas for this.
