Mobile Home and RV Parks

Florida Department of Health in Seminole County Environmental Health

All of these establishments in the State of Florida must obtain an operating permit from the Health Department. Any changes or modifications to the park facilities must be approved by the Health Department.

We have approximately 21 Mobile Home Parks/ RV Parks permitted in Seminole County. Parks are inspected at least 2 times 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.

Recreational Camps are also included in this program. Seasonal camps are inspected at least twice during the year. If the camp operates year round, it is inspected every quarter.

Anyone wishing to open a mobile home park or RV park must submit plans for the park through the local building department (city or county) for approval. Application for operation of a park must be made to the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County at least 30 days before beginning operation of the park. Annual operating permits are issued by the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County.

The permit fee is based on $3.50 per space with a minimum fee of $50.00 and a maximum fee of $600. The permit year runs from October 1 through September 30 of each year.
