Yes, I love where your head is at.

This is broken and should use a different tag.  addr:unit=12 would be
better.  Case in point, my address (in a caravan site, I know, breaking no
stereotypes about midwest life here...) already has addr:housenumber=801,
and could have addr:unit=252 if I got around to it (hard to accurately
survey in my trailer park).  Based on my home life and previous experience
as a field service engineer and postal service contractor, the US concept
of addresses for a campground, trailer park, apartment complex,
condominium, and office building are identical (with the exception of a few
edge cases where vanity addressing or multiple house numbers for the same
building or complex are in play).

I guarantee you that the fire department has some way to sort it out, and
it's probably the campground's street address.
