Yes Paul, agree.  Lets look at a small set of additional tags to add to
tourism=camp_site ?   How about (with typical data to start the

max_stay=2     (and define it as days)
min_stay=2     (again, days)

They sound easy, now how to define the 'type' of campground. You mention
State Park and commercial, I'd add 'free', common term in Oz and means
