My thought of going to every other week, would be to allow for more in each show. I would leilky try and do a full chapter each show and I would leilky add a recap to the show as well. My fear is that if I go every week that I will run out a material too quickly and I want to work on some other projects.I think you point out two things that are important: one if I push the episodes to every other week then I need to work in a recap and that the fiction needs to be the main focus.Thanks,Terry

We visited Assateague in May of 2011. This is a unique campground. Some sites are about 30 yards from the ocean. Lots of sand, few trees. No privacy. Only one loop has electricity, but none have water. The bath houses were modern and clean but the shower stalls had no doors or curtains. The women were not happy about the lack of privacy.





We visited in May during the week and had much of the campground to ourselves. Weather was nice but when storms hit the wind was accelerated by the proximity of the beach. We saw some awnings ripped off of campers. Our PUP was really shaking but sustained no damage. We did not experience many bugs but were told they are unbearable in the summer.





There are many small horses which roam about the campground. The brochure claims they have learned to open coolers. There are manure piles everywhere.





Overall, we loved this campground. Primarily because of the beach and nearby attractions. I'm pretty happy anytime I can surf fish.

Poor marks for friendliness for one reason: your family dog is NOT welcomed here! Loop J is the only area where you can have pets...that's OK; but we felt VERY unwelcomed with our 8lb. 6mo.old puppy. So did the other pet owners we spoke to in loop J. This is the first year they've opened up to pets at all, but they left up the sign at the gate that reads "NO PETS". My wife was playing with our puppy on the blacktop in front of our campsite. Rider was on a nylon tether but my wife was not holding on to it. She was playing fetch when a ranger drove up and scolded her for not holding the leash. He warned her that this first year of allowing pets is strictly a trial run, and if the rules are broken like this it will go back to "NO PETS". Pet owners there just had the feeling that the place was run by people who didn't really want us there with our dogs and they were just waiting for an infraction of the rules so we could be whacked.
We have been in a great many state and national park locations where dogs are welcomed and we haven't experienced any pet-related problems before. I know the rangers in this park do not themselves make these rules, but it is important for a camping family to feel like they are welcomed in the campground. We felt UNWELCOMED with our family pet...and we will NOT come back.

As noted in a previous review, the only CG I have been to where you camp 100 yards from the beach. Lots of wildlife, right at your door (literally on my awning mat most mornings) and only a 15 minute drive to Ocean City MD with many good resturants and the boardwalk for the kids. At the CG you have a small playground, a small campstore, decent bath houses, and the main attraction of course, the beach and ocean. Bugs can be a problem in the mid summer because the sites are literally between the ocean and a swamp, but very beautiful and near many activities. I very unique place that I would highly recomend. One thing is most sites are primative, so reserve early if you want water and electric!

This is one of the only state parks on the east coast where you can camp on the beach (behind the dunes). Assateague is world renowned for its wild ponies, sitka deer and variety of avian life. With the exception of one loop, this park does not offer water and electric. Something to consider since you are camping under the blazing sun (don't forget to bring your own shade). I strongly reccommend Popup Gizmos when camping here. We stayed here in June and absolutely loved it. The weather was exceptional and the mosquitos were not yet out in full force. We were lulled to sleep every night with the crash of waves just beyond the dunes. From a cleanliness perspective, the park is very clean with one MAJOR exception - horse dung. It's everywhere and the camp hosts do their best to keep it clean, but just be aware and WATCH YOUR STEP. Speaking of horses, the wild ponies are everywhere. They are also very friendly and very hungry, so be careful with where you store you food. If you stay in the F loop you will have plenty of dunes and flora between you and the other campers. All of the other sites are flat with nothing between you and your neighbor. The facilities and sites are well maintained (as are most Maryland State Parks). This is, by far, our favorite destination. The beaches are very clean, but are left in their natural state, so you are at the mercy of mother nature. What this means is that the waters edge is sand mixed with crushed shells and fine gravel. No danger, but a bit different if you are used to pure sand with a nice gentle slope (as is the case with most beaches).
