My wife and I have never had any problems.....she always has sunbathed in her Wicked Weasel and we have had the rangers drive right past us....I really don't think that they are out to get simple sunbathers....they are looking for 'lewd' behavior and there is a certain kind of profiling going on with that.  I would suggest though, that a little bit of discretion might be a good thing.....if you see them coming, just lay out on your back for a while until they pass; it's really not that much of an inconvenience.  Hope to get out there soon!

 The Rangers at the Federal south beach are being truly harassing to all of the four wheelers and especially thongers on the beach.  The ranger is charge this year is a female with a desire to prove her masculinity by enforcing all rules and showing how big an ass she can be, to the point of harassing all beach goers during family lunch hours and having them stop whatever they are doing and pull out all of the safety equipment.  Someone should clue this clueless want-to-be-cop, that people go to the beach to have fun, not be harassed by her federal troops. Lady, having to show your papers at every corner, went out of style after World War II, get a clue, better yet, get a life and move on.

 Pat_1, thanks for your information.  Yesterday, I remembered part way down to Assateague that I forgot to put a shovel in.  I stopped at Home Depot and bought one.  For the first time ever a ranger stopped me on the way out and wanted to see that I had all my equipment.
Since the 4x4 area was 2/3 closed because of the piping plover, I thought it would be too crowded, so I didn't go there until late in the day.  I went to the north beach area first.  I set-up just past the 3rd "Nudity Prohibited" sign and spent most of the morning until 3:30 there.  I saw only 4 other guys there all day.  One person I talked to thought people were scared off by the heat.  But there was a breeze that kept the heat tolerable--and no flies--and no rangers.

 My wife and I went to the state park yesterday.  Wasn't that crowded.  I think the heat kept a lot of people away.  Flies were bad in the morning, but once the front came through and the wind changed direction, it wasn't bad.  Cooled off a lot.  We setup almost at the end of the last dune.  Before they cleared the beach because of thunder, a couple setup about 100 yards north of us.  The woman was wearing a green and white g-string bikini.  That was the only one that we saw.  My wife recently lost some weight so she finally wore a standard bikini.  She has a thong bikini but she's waiting to loose some more so we can get her a new one.  I had dork shorts on but a Undergear Pocket Thong on underneath.  Was going to sunbathe in it but had to wait until the weather rolled through.  When we got back to the beach, the other couple was gone.  Would have felt more comfortable in numbers.  I did sunbathe a bit in it but I think the man of an older couple setup near us was staring me down.  I think that he thought that I was naked.  I should have stood up.  Oh well.  Hoping to get back there soon.  Maybe after the crowd dies down next month.

Friday there was a guy in a group of two couples sitting just past the dune crossing to the state beach who had a minimal speedo type suit on.  Not a thong, but very minimal with an almost string side.

 My wife and I along with our teenage daughter and 2 of her girlfriends took a day trip yesterday to Assateague.  The weather was a bit overcast during the late morning and early afternoon.  We setup close to our usual spot North of the guarded beach of the MD state park but before the dunes ended.  Couldn't go to our usual spot because there were already fishermen there.  Didn't see anyone in minimal or thong suits this trip.  Maybe we didn't go up far enough.

Also, let me say that I enjoy fishing but I would never do this.  We had been setup for a couple of hours.  The closest person to us was a single woman about 50 feet away.  Didn't have a problem with that.  The problem that I had were the 3 fisherman that decided that fishing right in between us was the best spot to fish!  Give me a break.  There are miles of beach and you have to do that?  And the best part about it was that they fished for 3 hours and didn't catch a damn thing.

Would like to try for one more trip before the weather turns but don't know if we'll be able to manage it.

 My wife and I were down at Assateague last weekend 8/6-7 and were in the OSV zone with the truck. She was wearing a Malibu Strings teardrop suit and I had on a skinzwear string back suit. We had about 125yds distance on our right to the next vehicle and about 50yds to our left. The lady on our left had a brazillian cut bikini, which was tucked in in the back so to speak. I was rigging up a surf fishing rod and my wife was sitting down having a cup of coffee that we just brewed up on the camp stove when the US Ranger pulled up. He came over under the pretext of checking fishing licenses which are now required for coastal fishing. We produce the documents. Then he proceeded to inform us that thongs were illegal on pubic beaches and asked us to put on something that covers more. We complied, but were asked to provide ID and he wrote up official warning tickets for "indecent exposure" citing 36 CFR 2.34 (code of federal regulations - disorderly conduct). After receiving the warning I engaged the ranger in a conversation to clarify why we were ticketed. I referenced the 2006 MD circuit court case were a mans conviction was overturned for mooning his neighbor. I stated that I believed that thongs were legal in light of this ruling.

From the Washington Post on the case...
Acquitting a Germantown man who exposed his buttocks during an argument with a neighbor, a Montgomery County Circuit Court judge ruled yesterday that mooning, while distasteful, is not illegal in Maryland."If exposure of half of the buttock constituted indecent exposure, any woman wearing a thong at the beach at Ocean City would be guilty," Judge John W. Debelius III said after the bench trial, reversing the ruling of a District Court judge.
This would argue that thongs should be perfectly legal anywhere in MD. But, Assateague is under Federal regulation, so I also brought up that thongs are a-OK in Cape Hatteras Ntl. Seashore were I have had quite a few pleasant and friendly talks with rangers while I was wearing a g-string back suit. The Assateague ranger commented that the rangers at Hatteras were lax in their enforcement and said that exposure of the buttocks was "illegal" on federal beaches. He was kind of scrambling and reaching to come up with this response. I politely retorted that I supposed this was an issue of discretion on the rangers part and he meekly agreed and ended the conversation.The ranger then proceeded over to our neighbor and harassed her about her buttocks exposure. This was for a brazillian bikini which was tucked in to make it like a thong.(she had about 1/3 rear end coverage when it was tucked) She pulled it out to its fullest position and the ranger did not give her the written warning. He also reprimanded them for their (very well behaved) dog not being leashed.We had a good chat with our beach neighbors after the ranger moved on. She though it was ridiculous that we were ticketed. She even said she wouldn't have cared a bit if we had been naked. Later that day she was laying out topless, which I considered a fine way to protest the days earlier event.Just wanted to give everyone a heads up and hope you have a better time visiting Assataegue than we did.

Assateague is under a "concurrent juristiction" policy which means even though it's federal seashore, they are able to enforce the local uptight municipal laws.  This is in contrast to the Outer Banks where the more lax federal standards are allowed to apply.

From my conversation with the ranger, he was enforcing federal policy, not state under the concurrent jurisdiction.I forgot to mention in my original post that I suggested that if thongs were not permitted at Assateague that it should be posted with the other regulations that are posted at the entrance to the OSV zone. The ranger stated that he believed that it WAS posted at the North and South Ocean beaches. So I checked at the North Ocean beach on the way out of the park. This is the most heavily used life guarded beach, where one would expect the most restrictions. There is NOTHING on the signage prohibiting thong swimsuits (or topfree/nudity for the matter). It has the normal stuff about no glass containers, no boogie boards/surfboards, no pets, etc. that are par for course on a guarded beach.

 Go further south. Get at least 2 miles south of the bull pen or further. We were down that way today and it was great. The NPS enforces state law in federal park land in Md. The rangers have been very inconsistent with regards to thongs and microkinis, maybe because the indecent exposure law is so vague. We were given a verbal warning one year when my wife was sitting on the tailgate breast feeding on the northend of the osv area. Go further south next time and enjoy the beach hassle free.

Yes, Assateague is the closest to DC where you wont get any hassels.  you'll see a few nudists and thongers if you walk north from the mainstream part of the beach.  I've never had any issues thonging there, but the nudists are constantly watching for rangers.

ctm-  No big changes this year. Dunes closed to nesting Plovers, but should reopen earlier than past years. Same folks as always with new couples showing up each week. With dunes closed, it has brought the groups of gay men out of hiding to do their acts. Which of course draws the attention of the innocent walkers, which of course draws the attention of rangers. Just a few incidents, but enough to start a trend. Other than that, alot of nice singles and couples. Couples grouping up has always been the best way of enjoying the day. You can relax more because someone is always within ear shot and the group is a determent to the lone single male. Seems the groups naturally form themselves on the weekends. tanner- best to pay attention to the wind. If the wind is NE, E, SE, S, and SSW you are golden. SW, W, NW brings the flies. Water is unbelievably warm this year, already mid 70's in the surf.

For flies, and the wind that may keep them off, checkout the wind forcasts on WindGuru .  Quite accurate for direction and strength forecasts, hour by hour. 

For other regions just select the state and nearest location from the drop down list.

 thanks for the update sunluv. As for the people having inappropriate behavior. We (the groups) need to call them out. Let them know that is not welcome here. While i mostly go the the national 4x4 section I really don't want to see the rangers go overboard in the state park. We as a group need to have a zero tolerance for that!

stopped by a ranger this week--rolled up on an ATV and said "you gotta cover up... you must have both sides covered."  when I replied that i had seen countless rangers over the summer and no one had expressed any concern or had prior issue  with my wearing a thong, he said "i'm just doing what I was told to do."

first time in several years I've been approached/reprimanded for wearing a thong. it would appear that they make up the rules depending on who's on duty. unfortunate way to end a good summer of thong tanning.

My wife and I were there Tues. of this past week as well as Thurs. Tues. my wife wasn't feeling like walking to far up the beach due to the lack of people there so we stopped just short of the dune,so we set up camp there and of course I'm in my thong , no problems BUT when the white ranger truck came by I was i my beach chair, later on I was sunny side up when 2 life guards ran by , they didn't say anything but 10 mins later a female lifeguard  came up on a 4 wheeler luckily I had a towel around me, she circled and went back down the beach THEN  another 10 mins later a ranger came around the dune and gave me a hard look  but I was on my beach chair at that point, no harm no foul, now I know I should have been farther up but what the hell
