The present tagging of camp sites can (if tagged) provide 
discrimination/distinction between those that charge a fee and those 
that don't.

Jan, think more about what your trying to achieve? I don't think it is 
about the fee .. but about the specialisation of the site? It is going 
to be difficult to put into words... Wild, informal ... primitive... vs 
organised, formal ?  I'd not distinguish between a camp site that is 
only a camp site and a camp site that is associated with a 
hotel/pub/motel. The location of the two on the map would give you that 

Don't worry about it being rendered .. just the tagging. Get that right
