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.
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).
How to Map
- name=* - the name of the caravan site
- operator=* - the company/organization running the site
- capacity=* - how many pitches are available
Mapping Facilities Within the Site
If the positions are known, facilities within the site can be mapped as separate nodes or areas:
- amenity=drinking_water where humans can obtain smaller quantities of potable water for consumption
- amenity=water_point where you can get larger amounts of "drinking water" for filling a fresh water holding tank
- amenity=sanitary_dump_station for chemical toilets and waste water ("grey water").
