What is the translation of "Comment s'appelle ce terrain de camping"? I know that the literal translation is, "How do you call camping"? but that makes no sense to me.

*camping* is an English word borrowed by the French language which means

1. the activity of camping

2. camp-ground.

"Comment s'appelle" is an expression which translates to "what do you call ...."

"ce" => this

"terrain de camping" => camp-ground

So the sentence translates to:

What is the name of this camp-ground?

Oh, I translated wrong, my apologies. So then, how would I answer this? I'm unsure of what it is asking.
