Just to make sure we are all singing from the same hymn book, here is a
table summarising the differences between these different camp sites.
Sorry if you are not using fixed spacing fonts, you should !
Standard Designated Trekking Informal
Fee Significant No/Nominal ? No
Toilets Yes Possibly No No
Power Usually Rarely No No
Water Yes Sometimes Maybe No
Washing Usually Rarely No No
Staff Yes Rarely No No
Pitches Yes Rarely no No
Official Yes Yes Usually No
"Toilets" should be read as "Toilets/Sanitary Dump Point"
"Staff" means someone in attendance at some time.
"Pitches" is a UK term meaning defined spaces where each individual
tent/caravan/whatever sets up.
"Washing" might mean laundry, dish washing facilities...
What have I missed, got wrong ?
My point might be that with so many factors, we are unlikely to see a
100% of campgrounds to fit into their category flawlessly every time.
Thus words like "rarely" and "usually".
