Appearantly there are already people using this key following a different
scheme, (looks as if they used it to tag parts of camping sites rather than
using this to specify a detailed subtypology, have a look at taginfo here:
http://taginfo.osm.org/keys/camp_site . There are roughly 1,8K uses as of
now, which is not very much but maybe not so few that we can completely
ignore it. IMHO from a semantic point of view the tags in use do not make
much sense, for example a reception can occur everywhere and it seems like
a bad idea to have different tags according to which feature it provides.

It seems logical for me to use the tag camp_site=* to specify subtypes of
camp_sites, but it could also be "camp_site_type" if we wanted to avoid a
conflict. Some values are documented here in the wiki:

I don't like the idea that a "designated" camp site has to be
non-commercial, I'd rather tag that aspect with the "fee" key.
