a camp could be "access=permissive" (trespassing tolerated) or
access="private" / access=customers where private and customers seem
access=yes /public (a right for everyone to access) is not a situation I
have ever encountered on a camp site, but it might eventually exist.

ownership is something different, at least in some countries which I know
it is possible that the public has a legal right to access a privately
owned site / land. This is typically written in the land register or is
based on some general law (e.g. the public may enter any forest and any
not-fenced field in Germany, but many of them are privately owned).
