|Tools for this tag|
Aor campground is an area, usually divided into a number of pitches, where people can camp overnight using tents or camper vans or caravans. There may be various amenities associated with it such as electricity, drinking water, toilets, beach for swimming, etc.
There are two types of campsites:
- a dedicated area with improvements and various facilities
- an impromptu area (as one might decide to stop while backpacking or hiking)
A tourism=camp_site can be tagged as either an area or a node, but ideally as an area if the perimeter is known. There is a proposal for a better method of tagging campsites with all the attributes and amenities relating to it by using the site relation.
The table lists tags which can be added to the campsite. Ideally amenities (showers, drinking water, etc) are mapped at their physical locations but otherwise add them to this object so at least people know it exists somewhere around the site.

|drinking_water||yes/no/unknown||Availability of water to drink. 'No' is a clear statement however, 'Yes' might be better replaced by one of the amenity tags at most camping facilities. See Additional Features below.|
Where these additional features are present they can be mapped, preferably as separate nodes or areas at the appropriate location:
|Camp Site||Reception||Proposed feature. Reception/check in.|

|Amenity||Boat Storage||Where the boats are stored if they offer rentals or if you bring your own.|
|Amenity||Drinking Water||Only water source with rendered icon. Could combine with water_tap or water_point?|

|Natural||Tree Row||A line of trees. More shade.|
|Highway||Service||For most minor camp roads|
|Dog||yes/no/leashed/etc||Proposed feature. Would be good for explicitly showing dog beaches, etc.|
I think we should have different kinds of icons for the differend kinds of campsites. (See above). Green (only tents), green with a little campfire (backcountry, no services, campfires allowed), blue (caravans - rv allowed), red (large campsites, lots of services, long term or semi-permanent residents) and so on.
