That's one possibility. However, let me use the example of the Boy
Scout camp I grew up going to. The camp itself is rather large with
many outlying wooded areas and activity areas. Within the core of the
camp, there are several camp sites. Each troop would inhabit it's own
site or share one with another troop for the week. Each site had its
own set of tents, trails and latrines. While the overall camp would
be labeled Horseshoe Scout Reservation, camp sites would have their
own names like Dan Beard, Boonesbourgh, Leni Lenapi, Forester, etc.
> While not directly answering your question, I'd suggest that mapping in the roads, tracks and paths around the campsite plus the node location of main facilities such as toilets and potable water give a reasonable impression of the size and complexity of the campsite. That's what I've done in Australia. I've used a few non-standard amenity types that are common generally in Aus that I've not put proposals in for: barbeque, shower, picnic_table if I recall.
This seems more appropriate for something like the campground at a
national, state or commercial park that isn't broken up into discrete
regions with their own boundaries.
