Most rendering will show nothing for such tagging.  If you tag like that,
few people will ever see it.

It's also ambiguous tagging, as you won't know what the other tags refer
to.  For example:

amenity=bar;restaurant;picnic_table;sanitary_dump_station;internet_access
opening_hours=24/7
fee=$5

Makes it unclear what the bar's hours are.
Much cleaner tagging, and the way it's frequently done now, is a node or
area with:

amenity=camp_site
bar=yes
picnic_table=yes
internet_access=wlan
opening_hours=24/7
fee=$5

Now it's clear that the camp site is open 24/7 and costs $5, but nothing
specific is said about the other amenities.

If you know more about the bar, then you can create a separate node with
all the details.
If the camp_site is a node, consider researching the true boundaries (if it
has fixed boundaries) and making it an area instead.
