It's hard to tag that. The normal access-tags wont fit to this 
situation, because they typical would describe the situation within the 
campground. So I would prefer something like water_access=yes|only|no 
(no would be default).

There is also a tag waterway=biwak (or something very similar) for 
spaces there you are allowed to sleep for a night, mostly situated next 
to a river etc. But they are no real campsite, mostly only a meadow, 
toilet and some picnic-tables.
