Who enforces the regulation? This is enforced by Park County Building & Zoning.
What if I setup a Yurt? Park county does not permit full time yurts, they are classified as a temporary structure and fall under the camping laws.
Can I put up a Container and camp? Containers are no longer permitted on residential zoned properties, call Park County directly for other zoned areas.
