Mobile Homes

Mobile Home / R.V. Parks and Recreational Camps are establishments that each require an operating permit from the Florida Department of Health. Any changes or modifications to the park facilities must be approved by the Department. The objective of this program is to minimize the risk of injury and illness in this residential environment. The objective is accomplished through routine inspections of these parks and camps ensuring the residents' risks for disease from an environmental origin are minimized.

Mobile Home/ R.V. Parks are inspected each year to assure that water supply and sewage disposal facilities are properly maintained, garbage is being properly handled and disposed, and general sanitation of park is maintained in good order, i.e. no junk, stray animals, rodent harborage, etc. If the park has a swimming pool, that is also inspected. Recreational Vehicle Parks must post their site rates and have the current rate schedule filed with the local health department. For information on Health Issues, Business Issues, Application Forms, & other information please visit the Florida Department of Health – Mobile Home Park Web page.
