Have a good trip!
The US Gov't side (Assateague Island National Seashore) is fairly primitive camping, with only chemical toilets, cold water showers and drinking water.
The state side (Assateague State Park) also offers camping, and has more features, such as a fire ring and picnic table at each campsite and offers a camp store, dumping station, and food & beverages.
I enjoy camping on the state side more, because of the conveniences, but it tends to be more crowded and less private.
The best part of the camping was bringing a 4X4 and riding the beaches. You can ride over 12 miles of beaches on the Maryland side (not allowed in Virginia), and catch sight of all those "nude" sunbathers! However, they recently increased the permit fees for using the beach with a motorized vehicle, and it became too expensive unless you actually lived near there and could use it more often than just a few days visit.
And, Ocean City is nearby, which is always a treat!
