I was discussing this over dinner last night with my wife's cousin. They have a Jeep OTW (other than Wrangler) and were thinking about making a visit. I have seen some official-looking web sites, have some questions.
1. It looks like there is a MD State Park and a US National Park at Assateague. What is the difference between the two parks - do both parks have over the sand access, or is this just at the National Park? Also, just sand access, or how close can you get to the ocean?
2. It looks like the National park charges an entrance fee of either $15/7-days or $30/annual, and an additional $90 OHV permit for sand access. Is this information current?
3. What maintenance do you need to do after driving on a beach (fluids, etc.)?
I know there are other requirements (equipment - tow hooks, shovel, jack and jack base suitable for sand use, etc.).
