campgroundsTrailer Courts & Campgrounds

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (MDPHHS) licenses trailer courts and campgrounds, and annual inspections are conducted to assure adequate levels of sanitation in sewage disposal, water supply, and refuse disposal. Trailer Courts, by definition, are considered subdivisions. Therefore any new proposal for a Trailer Court must have plans and specifications reviewed and approved by the Department of Environmental Quality. Plans may also be subject to review by the local planning department in Gallatin County.



Licenses are owner and site specific. Contact Environmental Health Services for an ownership or location change. Trailer court and campground facility approvals are owner and site specific, and Environmental Health Services needs to be contacted in the event of an ownership or location change. A plan review may be required for a new facility or the remodel/expansion of an existing facility. This includes:

• Submitting a complete plan review packet with appropriate fees

• Scheduling a pre-opening inspection upon approval of plans
