Directions: Route US-13 runs north/south along the Eastern Shore. Take 13 to route VA-175 east. Follow 175 for approximately 10 miles onto Chincoteague Island, continue straight across the island to Assateauge Island where you will find Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge.

(Yes, it's confusing. Google Maps or Mapquest will route you across Chincoteague Island to our location on Assateague Island Virgina - not to be confused with Assateague Island Maryland)
