Campgrounds

Campgrounds in Ohio are regulated under the authority of Chapter 3729 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) and Chapter 3701-26 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC).

These rules were created to establish minimum standards, applicable throughout Ohio, for the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of these facilities in order to protect the public from injury, minimize the potential for disease transmission, and provide a safe and healthy recreational environment.

What is an RV/Campground?

Collectively, campgrounds include any:

  • Recreation camp

  • Recreational vehicle (RV) park

  • Combined park-camp

  • Temporary campground

Our inspectors will routinely inspect all RV/Campground (while open to the public) paying particular attention to grey/black water discharge, capacity limitations, sanitation, and the maintenance of the overall facility.

Proposed Changes to Resident Camp Rules

 

Ohio Department of Health has posted proposed rule changes for Resident Camps, and are open for public comment through end of business on

July 30, 2019.
