  Ah, hadn't thought of that. I'm not hung up on using this tag, I was
just trying to make a complete list... but a different database might be
better maintained.

  Interesting. That isn't the case in the western US, or other countries
I've been in. Some even tell you were to stay if you want better
connectivity from your camp. They're usually honest about spotty
coverage, so not really a problem. Often the only wifi router is in the
main office/lodge, so it's pretty easy be out of range.

  Note the entire purpose of camping should not be making sure you have
a data connection. :-) I work in the field for prolonged periods, so
sometimes drop into a real campground to sync up data. (and a shower)

  Chaos Camp. :-) And a few other Hacker camp-outs I've attended. These
are temporary, so of course not worth mapping.
