What is a Temporary Park Camp?

A Temporary Park Camp is a location where campers or other types of vehicle or units are set up or parked that is used to temporarily house workers during a local home days event or a community fair, carnival, rib cook-off, etc. A license is required if there are five (5) or more units on site. These camps are not allowed to be open and can not be licensed for more than a total of seven (7) days.


License and Inspections

  • In order to have a Temporary Park Camp, you will need to submit both a license and plan review application to the Health Department at least two (2) weeks before the event.
  • Enough time must be allowed for the review and approval of the submitted applications so that the camps can be licensed at least seven (7) days before the event.
  • The Temporary Park Camp license fee is $130.00. The inspection includes an assessment of restroom facilities, safety of drinking water supply, waste water collection, trash collection areas, fire safety, and nuisance-related issues.
  • The inspections are conducted before the event begins and then again as needed during the event.
