This website publishes administrative rules on their effective dates, as designated by the adopting state agencies, colleges, and universities.

Rule 1501:46-9-03.1 | Camping permits and rental periods, limitations.


The maximum period of time that any person is permitted to stay overnight in any designated campground or other rented overnight facility within a state park shall not exceed fourteen days in any thirty day time frame. Any attempt to circumvent the fourteen night limitation by means of changing the registered name of a group or individual, creating multiple user profiles, or otherwise altering reservation information is not permitted. If a reservation or series of reservations is determined to be out of compliance with the maximum length of stay prescribed in this rule, the occupant or occupants of the campsite or other overnight facility will be contacted and directed to determine which reservations will be canceled to achieve compliance with these provisions. Refunds will be applied to any advance reservations, as necessary, to bring the total nights within the allowable limit. Cancellation fees will be applied for any advance reservation canceled for this reason.

Persons who knowingly violate this rule may be restricted from obtaining future rentals and may have their online reservation account restricted or suspended.
