|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).
Usually only one caravan is permitted on an individual pitch, but more than one 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 following tags should be placed on the point or way:
|This is a pitch for a tent, caravan or motorhome.
|If a specific pitch has an identifier; usually on a post, sign or map; use the ref tag to record the identifier.
|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.
Tags used in combination
These additional property tags may be added to describe characteristics of the camp pitch and availability of amenities at the pitch:
|Maximum number of visitors allowed
|Whether camping in vehicles is allowed
|Whether camping in tents is allowed
|If motor vehicle parking is permitted at the pitch
|The surface material of the pitch
|<number of meters>
|The maximum length of vehicle / caravan permitted
|<number of meters>
|The maximum width of vehicle / caravan permitted
|Whether a fireplace with chimney is present
|Whether an open fire or campfire is permitted
|Availability of water to drink.
|Provision of wireless access to the internet, e.g. via WiFi.
|Availability of a picnic table at the pitch.
|Whether the pitch has electricity supplied
|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.
