That seems very wrong, as we tag parking lots with access=private and they are still mapped and rendered. 

They are a camp site visited by hundreds, if not thousands of people, just a private one.

 A camp I worked at handled 1500 scouts in 6 weeks during the season! All of them had to be driven there into the high mountains - sure would be nice to have it labeled! 

it is not a private residence, it’s just a club building/facility, like a church, an office, or a factory. 

these are famous access places for millions people in america and abroad, and well known and labeled on regional maps.

Camp Hual-cu-cuish is a private boy scout camp (SW of the lake). Labeled on official US maps. 

the camp was destroyed by a wildfire in 2007 and is off of new park maps

As you write, they are private facilities and no-one can go there to camp besides the scouts of the organization that operates the camp.
