I believe you may be thinking about how to choose between tourism=camp_site
vs tourism=caravan_site for a dual-use campground or campsite. I would use
camp_site if it is mostly used for tent camping and caravan_site if it is
mostly used for RVs/caravans.

This new tag is about individual pitches (British English) and can be used
for a caravan spot or a tent location.

How do you handle area within such a site that accept both caravans and
> tents?  Some

The proposed tag tourism=camp_pitch can be used for either type: a tent
pitch or a caravan pitch.

There was a separate proposal that includes some additional tags that can
be used to specify if the camp_pitch is used for caravans or tents, but I
have not updated that proposal yet:


If tourism=camp_pitch is approved, we can then consider which new
attributes or subtypes are needed.
