this is an issue that lies within the responsibility of the individual
mapper, IMHO. Just because OSM shows a possible place to camp does not
necessarily mean that lots of people will go there, especially if the place
is hard to access (e.g. no access by car, long hike to get there). And just
because there is a tag does not mean you have to add every beautiful
"secret" camping spot you know about into OSM.
