Perry County Health Department

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). The campground 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.

All Pay-to-Stay Campgrounds in the State of Ohio are licensed and inspected annually by the health department for compliance with Ohio Law. Events and locations that have temporary camping for a fee are also required to be licensed and inspected. Inspections are performed to ensure that campgrounds are operating in a clean and healthy manner to protect the health of public.
