The Environmental Health Unit of the Wayne County Health Department conducts regular seasonal inspections of the recreational vehicle park/camps and Temporary park camps in the County. State law (Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3733) 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);
Inspectors check to see that campgrounds are adhering to Campground Rules under OAC 3701-26. Items inspected include the camp’s overall sanitation and safety which include: proper sewage, wastewater, and refuse disposal; spacing between units; restroom and shower facility sanitation; electrical safety; and playground equipment safety.
