As long as there is a way to differentiate the trekking sites from informal sites (and assuming car-camping and caravan sites are already differentiated enough) I don't care if they are in the same tag, as they can easily be given a different icon through tag differentiation. 

Also - is there some way to tag if the campsites have a (raised) platform of some kind for the tents? 

There are several camps I can think of - US Boy Scout camps and rent-a-tent sites in Japan that have somewhat permanent tent platforms on the sites. A tent (purpose-built canvas tents or a clients tent) can then go on the raised (usually wooden) platform. 

Is there a way to tag these structures, as they don't really move (they would be a "permanent" fixture of the campsite) but building=* implies something more...
