    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Some people come to Chincoteague to see the wild ponies. Some people come for the beach and the National Seashore. We came to take photos of the Assateague lighthouse. Unfortunately we were too early in the season for tours. So we went on our own.

    Fondest memory: You can even see the lighthouse from the McDonald's parking lot

    Damage from Isabel storm

    by tpangelinan Written Oct 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Ok, this picture is to show you how much sand a hurricane can bring! This is the parking lot just after hurricane Isabel. The Handicap praking spot is burried under at least 2 feet of sand, they dug out some of the lot for people to pull in but they haven't got to this lot yet. They had built up mounds of sand about 30 feet tall from what they did move. This island was hit pretty hard and will take a little bit to clean up.

    Parking issues!

    Miles of dunes

    by tpangelinan Written Oct 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Some wonderful dune to take photos of, but please be very careful not to disturb them, there are signs that state "Senitive are please keep off fragile dunes" you will get a fine if the ranger catches you. The storm Isabell really did a lot of damage to Assateague Island.

    Careful of the dunes

    Miles of beaches

    Fondest memory: Go for a walk along the miles of beach, smooth sand, plenty of shelling and lots of very cool driftwood to be found here! 200 yards away is the bay, so if you get bored just go over to the bay for a few photos of white egrets and other water birds flying every where.
