Indeed Dave, thats my worry with this model. Same applies for survey
people in many cases. I'd need to walk around the whole ground, people
may well ask what I'm up to ?

IMHO these amenities are not "stand alone", they are attributes of the
camp ground itself. For things like fire places and BBQ, might be one
for every pitch. I'm not into micro mapping !

And if we map them as individual nodes, should they be marked
"private" ? Don't want them rendered in some cases, people may they
think they are public assess. But the Camp operator might want to map
his whole ground and that would make sense. Sigh ....

Indeed. Especially as there is no example of the tagging on the wiki. An
active discouragement to their use ?
