What is the Camel Hitch Used For?
Other than the obvious as mentioned above, I think that this particular knot would also make a great starting knot for securing loads etc. Many people use the Clove Hitch as the starting knot when securing loads, but sometimes you may want something a little more secure. In my initial testing of the Camel Hitch, it would seem that it is rather a secure knot, even if there is no load, the Camel Hitch does not appear to shake loose. Obviously the initial tightening and dressing of the knot is essential.
As the Camel Hitch is easy to tie, untie, and secure even if the rope is wet an slippery. With these qualities, maybe this is a good knot to remember, and that is not too difficult either.

The Camel Hitch Ashley’s Book of Knots Says:
ABoK 215 – Camel Hitch. The camel is the most ruminative of animals, and he slobbers constantly while he ruminates, particularly on his Picket-Line Hitch, which he believes is provided for the purpose. His knot is always sopping, but it has been very nicely planned; and so, wet or dry, it is never difficult to untie and it does not slip in either direction.
