March 22, 2022

For 2021, Assateague Island National Seashore received a record-setting 2,662,716 visitors to its Maryland and Virginia units. This put Assateague Island 33rd among the 380 National Park Units reporting visitation numbers, and ahead of such iconic locations as Mount Rushmore, Bryce Canyon and Shenandoah.
