But what do you do for a place, called a Camping Ground, that is a big area
of grass, mostly without defined "pitches" & where you can camp anyway you
like: sleep in your car; on the ground; in a tent / camper trailer /
caravan / motorhome?

Any period is acceptable, from one night only up to "by discussion with
management", although permanent residents aren't allowed.
