Campgrounds include recreation camps, recreational vehicle (RV) parks, combined park-camps, and temporary campgrounds. Campgrounds are regulated in Ohio because improper placement of recreational vehicles and incorrect utility connections on those vehicles or inadequate environmental controls can contribute to the spread of communicable disease and/or cause injuries. We inspect campgrounds and work with campground operators to protect the public from injury, minimize the potential for disease transmission, and provide a safe and healthy recreational environment.
