+1, if you want to go to a campsite in France in July or August ,most of
the time you have to made reservations (in our case we had to check whether
dogs were welcome [1]). Long beforehand, especially along the coast.

I could have used OSM to create a short list based on location, further
selection based upon website: detailed description + pictures + up to date
price information.  That's how we used the existing campsite listing

There are also classifications/organisations for campsites like "castle
campings" in France, typically 4 or 5-stars, or "Vacation at a farm", for
small campsites run by active farmers in The Netherlands. That would be
nice to know as well.



[1] I would never rely on this fact for a third party site, we always
wanted confirmation by the owner
