General

  • Holiday village overlooking Lake Maggiore, five minutes from Ispra
  • Direct access to the lake and to a watersports centre
  • Pool with waterslide; restaurant; pizzeria and beach volleyball

International, Ispra, Italy. And rather excellent to boot. International Camping Ispra is a holiday village overlooking the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore, in a setting famed for family holidays and sporty adventures on and around the country's second biggest lake.

There's so (so) much to do around the lake and this slice of Lombardy, from waterskiing and sailing on Maggiore to pootling around the teeny towns of the shoreside, many overlooking the famed Borromean Islands. More urban adventures can be had around Pella, Ronco and Omegna, or you can spend some/many euros bagging Italian fashion around Varese and Novara. The nearest town, Ispra, is under five minutes' drive away.

But do (do) take some time on site too. For there's not only direct access to the lake from here, there's a watersports centre in the grounds for waterskiing and wakeboarding as well as kayak and pedalo rental. Landlubbing activities are easily sorted at the beach volleyball area, tennis court, basketball court and football pitch, while if you yearn for yet more water the site has a pool with waterslide.

Eats? A site this well kitted out most certainly has that sorted also. The restaurant (with spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding mountains from its terrace) is the spot for pasta, pizza, meat, fish and takeaway; for doing it all yourself, the mini market is well stocked with local and international bits.

Activities of all sorts run in the summer months – well, you might need to burn off all that pizza... Take your pick from exercise sessions, sports tournaments, water aerobics, baby dance, shows and nightly entertainment, all running alongside the July and August kids' club.

    Situation on Lake Maggiore. Being able to book last minute and get a space. Staff seemed very friendly. Facilities seemed good, bar and restaurant looked fine, nice take away pizzas. Pitch was fine reasonably level and nicely shaded with mature trees. Electric hook up close by.

    Disliked: 

    Heaving with people. Despite covid, very few wearing masks in common public areas , including the staff. Very noisy, kids partying all night- classic bucket and spade high season campsite. Wouldnt normally choose this kind of place but had no option,so if you want a site with disco music all afternoon, with plenty of entertainment for young kids, this would be great. Stayed one night, as planned, and moved on. I suspect that it would be much nicer early or late season. Also, pictures show a beach and people swimming. There was about 50 foot of stinking mud to traverse before getting to the very shallow muddy water. Swimming was not possible, and the swimming pool required that you wear an old style swimming cap!

    Friendly staff, stunning view of the Lake and the mountains, children playground and activities, affordable water sports activity.

    Disliked: 

    German TV channel is missing and shower cabin is unfortunately wrongly built, the water stays on the floor. The staff immediately sent people to repair both but the handworkers speak only Italian, which unfortunately we cannot understand.

    Staff were friendly, and they let us borrow an extension cable for the electric hookup

    Disliked: 

    It stunk, we were only staying one night (thankfully) I don't know if it was the lake or the drains but there was a Pong lingering, pitches were small and you had to put credit on a card to use in the showers, why don't they just charge a couple of euros extra and save a lot of hassle, oh and the wifi cost 5 euros and was poor

Wouldn't go in a tourer16/08/2019

  • Electric optional grass and gravel pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The views are exceptional and The water sport activities are reasonably priced. Facilities are clean.

    Disliked: 

    After paying over £50 a night I was appalled to find out I had to pay for a shower and sun loungers. It became a bit of a joke towards the end of a holiday that we didn't dare do anything in case we got charged.
    Beware of being bitten to an inch of your life at night. They would spray during the morning which seemed pointless as early evening I would have thought would benefit.
    The worst part for us was the size of the pitch we were given. I travelled with another family so both in tourers. My hitch was less than 1 inch away from the rear of the 2nd caravan. As you can imagine this very little space to sit out during the evening.

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location, the lake was lovely and warm to swim, kayak etc. Pool was clean and cool. Staff friendly. Hire of kayak, paddle boards etc was quite reasonable and at the most was €10 per hour. Showers and toilets were cleaned regularly.

    Disliked: 

    Everything is an additional cost including showers and sun loungers, which you would expect to be included. Football pitch was €10 per hour so kids weren’t happy. Pitches were very tight with my sisters caravan being no more than an 1.5” away from ours (seriously and have photo). Our view of the lake was completely blocked by a huge motor home that was far too big for its pitch and didn’t quite fit in the pitch they were given but further round the lake they had small tents on bigger pitches than ours. More consideration needs to be given when organising their bookings.

    The staff were great and the scenery was pleasant. Pitches were even. Toilets clean.

    Disliked: 

    First impressions were that it was a bit of a "travellers" site. Washing, cables and cars all over the place. Lots of noise with music playing loudly by the pool whilst swim aerobics was on and frequent and loud announcements made it sound like an airport terminal. You also had to pay extra for Wi-Fi , sun loungers and showers which I didn't like .

Local attractions

The spectacular sights and activities of Lake Maggiore will probably take up much of your time here, but if you're up for exploring further, International Camping Ispra is within easy day trip distance of other local lakes.

Head south for about 20 minutes to reach Lake Comabbio and its lakeshore bike path, running for 12 and a half kilometres from its starting point at Ternate. Going east, it's about half an hour from the site to Lake Orto and its medieval settlement of Orta San Giulio; and if you're up for the hour and a half drive, the glacial waters of splendid Lake Lugano are to the north east.

Back at Maggiore, loop around the southern shore of the lake and up to its western one to get to Stresa, for boat trips to the Borromean Islands.
