I don't think there are too many "end users" who look up the raw data!

Agreed, whole heartedly !

And a camp ground that has a pool but no cloths washing facility ? Is
the water drinkable ?

BBQ, fire places, defined 'pitches', metered/unmetered power, disabled
toilets, shade, grass, cooking facilities, rec room, launching ramp,
fish cleaning facilities, internet access, pets allowed/not, child/dog
minding capability, credit card facilities .....

Need a category system, for sure, but need a lot of extra data not
implied by the category.
