A temporary park-camp is when a tract of land is used for camping by placing RV’s, campers, and/or tents for no more than 7 consecutive days and not more that a total of 21 days per year. Franklin County Public Health licenses and inspects all temporary park-camps in our jurisdiction to ensure the parks in compliance with the Ohio Temporary Park-Camp Rules (Ohio Administrative Code 3701-26).
Ohio Revised Code 3729.01(V) defines a temporary park-camp as:
(V) “Temporary park-camp” means any tract of land used for a period not to exceed a total of twenty-one days per calendar year for the purpose of parking five or more recreational vehicles, dependent recreational vehicles, or portable camping units, or any combination thereof, for one or more periods of time that do not exceed seven consecutive days or parts thereof.
Each person that intends to operate a temporary park-camp must be licensed by the local health department. The license to operate is only valid for 7 days.
