Assateague Island National Bayside Recreation Area

in Berlin Maryland

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
