Mobile Home and RV Parks and Campgrounds

Environmental Health

Mobile homes, lodging and recreational vehicle (R.V.) parks and recreational camps are licensed annually by the Florida Department of Health in Indian River County (DOH-Indian River) in accordance with Chapter 64E-15, Florida Administrative Code.

DOH-Indian River permits 53 facilities annually and conducts inspections for drinking water, sewage disposal, solid waste disposal, fire protection and insect and rodent control at mobile home parks, R.V. parks and campgrounds. Plans are reviewed for new and renovated facilities to ensure compliance with regulations before a permit is issued.

To apply for a new permit, download and complete the application form and submit it, along with a plan of your park, information on the water system, the sewage disposal system, any swimming pools along with the required permit fee which is based on the number of available spaces. The plans for a new park or camp must be drawn to scale and include the area and dimensions of the tract of land; the space number or other designation of the space; the location and size of all proposed mobile home, recreational vehicle, or tent spaces; the location of roadways and the location of any added service buildings. This permitting process meets state requirements, however, it is very important to contact local officials regarding any city and county requirements.
