The tag tourism=camp_site is used to map a campsite (UK) or campground (North American): an area, usually divided into a number of pitches, where people can camp overnight using tents, camper vans, caravans (aka RVs or motorhomes).
Note that while camp sites might (or might not) include occasional building=cabin or other housing accommodation, those are neither required nor indicative of tourism=camp_site (which is defined by having pitches for placing tents and/or caravans/RVs), and should be mapped as separate POIs and/or cabins=* property.
- A developed area with amenities such as electricity, drinking water, toilets, beaches for swimming, etc.
- A backcountry area with few to no facilities, often accessible only by off-road vehicle or on foot.
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. A number of these tags are also applicable and useful on the individually mapped camp pitches; e.g. pitches often have amenities intended only for the occupant's use. (see: tourism=camp_pitch).
