RV Parks / Campgrounds
State law requires that all campgrounds be licensed by local health departments, and inspected to verify that campers are properly spaced, sewage / wastewater is properly handled, and free from nuisances or safety issues. The Ohio Department of Health reviews plans for new campgrounds to verify that proper design standards are met in lot arrangements and utility installation.

The Putnam County Health Department requires temporary licenses to be obtained for one-time camping events. The temporary license requires provisions for proper solid waste handling, provision of portable toilets, and a plan for spacing arrangements. Call the health department or stop by if you need a temporary campground license application.
