New Content Coming Soon!

Hi Folks,

I haven't had much time lately as my newborn is keeping me busy and I rarely have two hands to type these days.

I'm planning to get some new quality content up soon. I've had a lot of requests for my packing lists, details on things to do, food, and related topics so I'm hoping to get to those pages first.

In the meantime, don't hesitate to visit our Contact Us page and send in your questions. Just give me a little grace period to get back to you due to the new baby.

I hope this finds you enjoying your summer! (hopefully at Assateague!)

Kind Regards,Kelly

Have Questions About Camping on Assateague Island?

Hi Folks, Kelly here.

I hope many of you are preparing for or have already enjoyed your trip to Assateague Island this season!

As we are anxiously awaiting the birth of our first child, I have not been able to add the new camping content to the site that I had wanted to before the season started, particularly regarding camping checklists, food ideas, and general tips about setting up your campsite and keeping your coolers safe from the ponies.

However, I am still available to answer any questions you may have regarding camping or things to do on the island. I may be a little slow getting back to you with a newborn to care for, but I WILL get back to you! It is helpful if you put your anticipated camping date in the message so that I know how quickly I need to respond.

Please bear with us during this time of transition. Once life settles down a bit I plan on adding all the "good stuff" to the site that you have been looking for. I hope I have enough information on the site to at least get you started.

I am also in the process of updating all my pages with my new Look & Feel so please bear with me if the pages look a little "funny" until they get fixed. Let me know what you think about the new look!

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments about the site or Assateague Island in general. Please visit our Contact Us page and send me a message! I love hearing feedback on the site as well.

I hope this finds you enjoying your summer and I look forward to hearing from you!
