Agreed Jan. Different things.

However, I think the vast majority of campers are also more interested
in 2). Your Overlanders are an important group but a small minority. I
think the term "camp_site" is an important resource and needs to be
applied where most will be looking for it.

So, to deal with 1), a fairly specialist need, you really need a new
term that reflects that specialist need. Maybe camp_business_type=*
