Environmental Health Division


A license from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is required to operate a campground in the State of Michigan. 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 Kalamazoo 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. All applications for new campgrounds must be submitted to the Kalamazoo County Environmental Health Division.

The Kalamazoo County Health and Community Services Department programs are open to all without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, religion, height, weight, marital status, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
