I'm looking for a dataset with campgrounds in the United Kingdom that I can load into a handheld Garmin GPS-receiver. Openstreetmap includes some, but it is not complete and it is not easy to search specifically for campgrounds. Is there such a database?

  • I got looking at Openstreetmap and noticed some camp sites are identified as a point, others are polygons labelled as camp sites. To capture all the data tagged as camp sites it may be necessary that you search for points and polygons?
