A caravan site, caravan park 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

In some countries this tag is also used for motorhome stopover locations.

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).
