There is much that needs to be done to bring OSM up to speed regarding
camping facilities IMO. We have only a very few tags tourism=camp_site,
tourism=caravan_site, and in a stretch, leisure=summer camp to describe the
myriad of facilities out there.

AFAIK, there is no way to distinguish a primitive camp site from one that
caters to motorized tourists, or one that offers kitchen facilities to
customers. In New Zealand many campgrounds have a shared kitchen area,
which they refer to as an "ablution block", that includes assorted pots and
pans and a source of hot water. A very nice feature indeed.

I don't have any suggestions but want to wish you luck on getting your
tagging resolved.
