|A tent or caravan pitch location within a campsite or caravan site|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
This tag provides a way to specify individual pitches within a campsite (a.k.a. campground) or caravan site (RV Park).
A "camp pitch" in this context is the free space used to place a tent or or caravan within a tourism=camp_site or tourism=caravan_site area.
Usually only 1 caravan is permitted on an individual pitch, but more than 1 tent may be allowed on a single pitch in some cases.
How to map
A camp pitch is tagged either as a node located at the pitch identifying post or sign, or a way around the boundary of the pitch if this area is clearly verifiable (for example, if there is a fence or border around the individual pitch area).
The pitch must be located within an area tagged tourism=camp_site or tourism=caravan_site
The following tags should be placed on the point or way:
|tourism=camp_pitch||This is a pitch for a tent, caravan or motorhome.|
|ref=*||If the pitch is identified with a reference, usually on a post or sign with a number, use the ref tag to record the identification.|
|addr:unit=*||If the campground has a street address with official unit numbers for each camp pitch, then in addition to using ref=* a addr:unit=* may be used. However, not all campgrounds have street addresses so using ref=* is the more generally relevant option.|
tourism=camp_pitch + ref=230 + addr:unit=230
These additional property tags may be added to describe characteristics of the camp pitch and availability of amenities at the pitch:
|capacity||number||Maximum number of visitors allowed|
|caravans||yes/no||Whether camping in vehicles is allowed|
|tents||yes/no||Whether camping in tents is allowed|
|parking||yes/no||If motor vehicle parking is permitted at the pitch|
|surface||paved/unpaved/grass/etc.||The surface material of the pitch|
|maxlength||<number of meters>||The maximum length of vehicle / caravan permitted|
|maxwidth||<number of meters>||The maximum width of vehicle / caravan permitted|
|fireplace||yes/no||Whether a fireplace with chimney is present|
|openfire||yes/no||Whether an open fire or campfire is permitted|
|drinking_water||yes/no||Availability of water to drink.|
|internet_access||wlan||Provision of wireless access to the internet, e.g. via WiFi.|
|picnic_table||yes/no||Availability of a picnic table at the pitch.|
|power_supply||yes/no||Whether the pitch has electricity supplied|
|permanent_camping||yes/no||Whether the pitch is for permanent residents only|
Possible tagging errors and frequent errors
- a small, simple area, with little or no equipment, that allows you to camp legally, outside of any other structure that can be qualified as a site : tourism=camp_site + camp_site=basic
- a sports field : leisure=pitch
- a reception structure for displaced persons inquires with amenity=social_facility + social_facility:for=displaced
- a "spontaneous" camp of displaced persons is sometimes indicated with amenity=refugee_site to differentiate between a reception structure and a spontaneous camp.
