Part 125 of Michigan's Public Health Code, Act 368 of 1978, as amended, establishes the requirements for constructing, modifying, licensing, and operating a campground in Michigan. Any campground with more than four campsites or recreational units is required to obtain a license from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE). Campgrounds can have either a seasonal (annual) or temporary license.
Seasonal campgrounds receive an inspection from the Lenawee County Health Department on a yearly basis. An inspection report with a licensing recommendation is submitted to EGLE after an inspection has been completed.
Temporary campgrounds are campgrounds that can be licensed in one location for up to 4 consecutive weeks. Temporary campgrounds must submit an application and receive an inspection from the Lenawee County Health Department in order to obtain a temporary campground license.
