The description of campgrounds (version) conflates "dedicated" and "developed" campgrounds. In the western US, many villages and small towns on old travel routes have dedicated campgrounds for through travelers. Those usually are located on a river floodplain, so there is water and clear ground, but that is all. Such campgrounds are dedicated but not developed. Developed campgrounds normally are in "backcountry" areas and have toilets, potable water, and designated campsites each with a picnic table and fire pit or grill. Rather than revise the article now, I invite others to first add details from other parts of the world. --Una Smith (talk) 17:40, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Holiday park[edit]

"The holiday park is a United Kingdom version of the North American trailer park. Created to allow coastal resorts to enable temporary and high-income accommodation to be easily created," it says, but is it not rather low-income accommodation? ajnem (talk) 18:29, 19 November 2010 (UTC)


The previous history section is entirely wrong. See Talk:Camping. Rmhermen (talk) 22:13, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
