Looks fun, but how did you know you could stay there?  Or did you just ask?

To give you a better impression of what I mean with non-designated campsites I uploaded images of places we stayed at in Iran, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and Malawi. Have a look here and enjoy. As you can see the quality of the places varies wildly.

Met vriendelijke groet/with kind regards,

Dave, I think we are after different things. Your proposal focuses on availability of services, while mine tells more about the relation between the camper and the land owner:

Designated: permission to camp, most likely the place is still there tomorrow, service offering (whatever it is) is stable, publicly announced as campground;
Non-designated: permission to camp, policy and services may change overnight, not publicly announced as campground (no signs, no listings);
Wild: no permission to camp (but no prohibition either), sometimes a policy, situation may change overnight, not announced.
