access for a campsite is about the right to be there. it's not about
how you can get there.
what you're really saying is not a property of the campsite, but that
traveling over land to get there is prohibited or inadvisable, and
that travling over water is acceptable and a good idea.
So it's almost like there shoudl be something like a ferry route on the
water, except that it isn't a ferry and showing how people often travel
in a mode that doesn't have constraints is frowned upon.
And it may be tricky where the overland path is not a good idea but is
covered by the "you can go anywhere that isn't prohibited" rule.
