Get licensing information for campgrounds.
We inspect and license all La Crosse County campgrounds
All La Crosse County campgrounds must be licensed and inspected each year. We do this to make sure they meet all the requirements of Wisconsin law related to general public health.
How to get your campground licensed
Before you can offer campground sites to the public, you must get a campground license from us. We must do a pre-inspection before your new license can be approved. We must do a health inspection once every licensing year to make sure you are in compliance with the law.
Step 1: Local municipality, building safety, zoning, and taxes
Step 2: Apply for a license
Step 3: Once you have submitted your plan review and it has been approved, and you have submitted your application and paid your fees, contact us to schedule a pre-licensing inspection.
Step 4: Once the application is submitted, fees are paid, and pre-licensing inspection is completed, a permit will be issued. Your license must be approved before you can provide campsites to the public.
