Not far from Hamburg, directly along the Elbe river, you will find Campingplatz Stover Strand International. Despite the proximity of this city of millions, the camping site is situated in an amazingly green and rural area. The pitches are free to select and not demarcated. Nevertheless, there are many trees which provide shade. Campingplatz Stover Strand International is open between Easter and October. However, behind the dyke are pitches that are available throughout the year.
The reception is housed in a fairly new building which is very well maintained. The staff makes one feel at home straight away. The site along the Elbe offers the most beautiful pitches with direct access to the beach. On the main grounds of the camping site you will find additional well-maintained rental accommodation (tents, mobile homes, rooms and bungalows).
Ideal base with all conveniences
The camping forms an ideal base for visitors wishing to explore the area (Hamburg, Lüneburg) or who like cycling. Many water sports enthusiasts visit here for boating activities on the river Elbe. There is a boat connection to Hamburg and in addition a free bicycle bus (in the weekends from May to October) with a shuttle service to Hamburg.
You do not have to leave the grounds for groceries; there is a large EDEKA supermarket with groceries as well as camping and angling supplies. There is also an excellent restaurant with regional dishes and a cosy cafe for coffee, bread and pastries.
Entertainment for children is offered on the camping site.
The sanitary provisions are neat, centrally situated and more than adequate, certainly for campers on the main camping grounds. For campers along the Elbe the sanitary provisions are somewhat less.

Toilet facilities were terrible too few for the number of campers etc crammed into every available space haphazardously.. So were the washing up facilities, which were open air. so what happens if it rains?? Also the instructions on how to get to the campsite were useless. There are no road signs to Ronne!
This site has a lovely location on the banks of the River Elbe, with cycle paths in both directions. However, shower facilities were inadequate in the area beside the river where we were placed. Allocated shower time, on tokens, very short indeed and water cold on one of the days we were there. Normally, the acsi deal guarantees a 4 minute shower but it was nowhere near that and I had to leave the shower when the water stopped abruptly, having just put conditioner on my hair. So disappointed.
Pre-Booked here for 2 nights. Promised a "nice spot". When we arrived we were directed to the area by the river, outside the main site, which was packed. Our pitch was so small we couldn't open our awning fully. It was a long long walk to the shower block (modern and very smart). Motorhome waste was very busy. We only stayed one night. The worst site we have stayed at.
Large site and very busy weekend with Hamburg Harbour festival. Allocated pitch in overspill field alongside river with fairly basic facilities in portercabins, clean with hot water but showers only 2 minutes. Larger and better facilities on main site across the road and shower an acceptable 4 minutes for 1Euro. Free wifi and good walks along river Elbe. Approx 40kms from Hamburg. Staff not very informative.
Glacial and rude reception that doesn’t accept MasterCard, nor Visa. We thought we’d sojourned in the actual campground, but no ! Staying for only one night on our way to Scandinavia we were unkindly sent 300 m away, over a dike in a grassy muddy field neighboring a river. Needless to say that the field was impracticable as soon as it rained. There’s more : prepaid internet doesn’t reach the muddy field, there’s no proper toilets, showers, kitchen on that side of the dike and the "real" campground is quasi-exclusively populated by local residents… We came once but never again !
We had difficulty finding this site due to poor signage and a long diversion for roadworks.
The main part of the site is very congested, with many seasonal vans, but we were sent to the area near the river. This is much less crowded, but a very long way to the shower block. There was however a Portacabin with basic toilets near our pitch, also dishwashing sinks and drinking water.
However, the only place to empty larger amounts of grey water and your chemical toilet is at the motor home service point at the gate, which is also a long way away.
For these reasons we were disappointed with the site and only stayed 2 nights.
This site has touring pitches in amongst their static mobile homes. Some pitches are not well defined and not too level. It is a very popular campsite in summer months because of the beach nearby. There were many motorhomes and caravans on the aire which is outside of the campsite across the road and much nearer the beach. These campers could still use some of the pay-as-you-go campsite facilities, and I would consider doing this next time now that we have seen how this could work, even in a busy period like July. The campsite is ok but not great on anything.
We had a great time here. Really helpful staff who provided information about getting to Hamburg. Bikes were on offer and we hired these; maps were provided.
