access=public is the norm for USA national and state park campgrounds.  No
Anyone can walk in for day use, but permission is required to hold a given
spot or stay overnight.

Private campgrounds may be access=customers or rarely access=permissive.

There's a strong difference between "day use" and "overnight use".  Day use
fees may apply,
or fees for certain activities like showers or RV dumps.
