Is there anything confusingly similar to a Ranger Station, that should have
a different tag?

Example: Pinnacles National Park has a true Ranger Station, but the first
contact for many visitors is elsewhere.
The main campground everyone uses has small store and campground office.
 There's a separate desk where park rangers hang out to talk maps and
collect fees.  Without guidance I'd call this as three nodes the same
building campground office/store/ranger station.

Example: the entrance stations at Yosemite National Park offer maps,
weather reports, collect fees, and are staffed with rangers who know the
park.  These rangers have radios to call on law enforcement.  Yet this is
pretty clearly an entrance kiosk, not a ranger station.
