Campgrounds in the State of Michigan must have a license from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in order to operate. The Environmental Health Division conducts an annual inspection of campgrounds to determine compliance with applicable state laws and investigates reported campground sanitation complaints.
Temporary Campgrounds also require an inspection and license. The Livingston County Environmental Health Division requires the application for a temporary campground to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event. In addition to the state fees, a County fee is imposed.
Additional information, permit applications, and laws and rules are available from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
