It's confusing because the term is already used to describe large playing fields, as in soccer and baseball. To use it here to describe an individual camp_site in an area with many other sites is a bit counterintuitive to me.  I would prefer tourism=campground or leisure=campground for the whole camping area and then campground=camp_site for individual areas it contains. But that's my American-centric view; I can live with the set of tags for individual pitches if that's what most people want.

IIRC, when those tags went in the discussion on the list had campground=camp_site in the original and the suggestion was to change to the more British centric "pitch". :)
