Hi an area tagged as campsite is in reality a caravan park with residentials inside. If a camper picks the site he gets a no if he shows up at the gate. In the UK a caravan parc is no campsite for tents and your not welcome. Whats the right way to tag it ?

The tag you want is tourism=caravan_site, probably also with tents=no to explicitly specify that tent sites aren't available.

Looking at the wiki page for tourism=camp_site https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dcamp_site then that too would do with tents=no and from the description in the question perhaps static_caravans=yes (though I suspect it will still render on the default rendering as a tent).

You said it had "residentials" inside. If you mean it contains prefabricated homes, what in the U.S. are called house-trailers or mobile-homes, then this is quite a different area and the caravan-site tag will not be appropriate. There is a proposed feature that makes more sense to me at: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Trailer Park (please substitute underscores for the dashes in my tag examples)

I warn you in advance that there are quite probably differences in the way such a place would be referred to in different countries. In the U.S. the tag is unambiguous but in Europe, there will almost certainly be variations in nomenclature. We just had a long discussion on the tagging list about shops selling mobile_homes, RVs, and caravans. You might find reading it informative and maybe even entertaining. https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2019-January/041883.html

No one has touched that Trailer Park proposal in years, don't think that's the way to go. I usually just use landuse=residential for trailer parks. They often have names which I try to add too.
