I would like to have some of the items on Extend_camp_site page brought onto the main camp_site page. Specifically the site/pitch specific tags at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Extend_camp_site#Tagging_of_individual_pitches

While they are not widely used, I see a fairly big geographical distribution which implies that they might be understood and universal enough to warrant better mention.

And, of course, I used them myself when mapping a couple of U.S. Forest Service campgrounds. :)
