Status: de facto

A caravan site, caravan park, motorhome stopover location or RV park is a place where people with caravans / motorhomes / recreational vehicles can stay overnight, or longer, in allotted spaces known as "pitches" or "sites". They usually provide facilities including toilets, waste disposal, water supply, power supply etc..

They may also have some space for tents. If a site is primarily for tents, it should be tagged as tourism=camp_site. If tents are allowed on a site it should be tagged with tents=yes.

This tag is not for mapping parking spaces for (unoccupied) storage of caravans / RVs (though some caravan sites may offer that as an additional service).
