State law (Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3729) requires the annual licensing and inspection of all campgrounds within a local health jurisdiction.  As specified in state regulations, campgrounds are divided into four (4) categories for licensing purposes:

  • Recreational Vehicle Parks (for RVs);
  • Recreation Camps (pop-up campers and tents);
  • Combined Park-Camps (contain a combination of RVs, pop-up campers, and tents);
  • Temporary Park-Camps (camping units located at short-term events and festivals);

Our inspectors look at a camp’s overall sanitation and safety which include: proper sewage, wastewater, and refuse disposal; spacing between units; restroom and shower facilities sanitation; electrical safety; and playground equipment safety.

Resident Camps (4-H, Girl Scout/Boy Scout-types of camps, or other campgrounds for overnight camping purposes) must have a permit to operate from the local Board of Health.

All of our inspection records are public records and are available to the public during our regular business hours.  Although walk-in requests are welcomed, if possible, it is best to call first to see if a campground program inspector is available to help answer any questions that may arise during review of the records. The Ohio Admindistrative Code (OAC), Chapters 3701-25 and 3701-26 outline the rules we use during these inspections.

Please call our office weekdays between 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. at (330) 723-9523 with questions about our Campground Program.
