AN  ACT  to  amend the executive law, in relation to the definition of a
  campground within the Adirondack park

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Subdivision  10  of  section 802 of the executive law, as
amended by chapter 348 of the laws  of  1973,  is  amended  to  read  as
follows:
  10.  "Campground"  means [any area designed for transient occupancy by
camping in tents, camp trailers, travel trailers, motor homes or similar
facility designed for temporary shelter] A  TRACT  OR  PARCEL  OF  LAND,
INCLUDING  PRINCIPAL  BUILDINGS  AND ACCESSORY STRUCTURES, WHERE FIVE OR
MORE CAMPSITES ARE MADE AVAILABLE FOR TEMPORARY  OR  SEASONAL  OVERNIGHT
OCCUPANCY. NOTHING IN THIS ARTICLE SHALL REQUIRE THE REMOVAL OF A RECRE-
ATIONAL VEHICLE THAT REMAINS ON A CAMPGROUND OR A CAMPSITE IN SUCH CAMP-
GROUND,  WITH  THE  CONSENT  OF THE OWNER OF THE CAMPGROUND DURING THOSE
PERIODS OF TIME THAT IT IS NOT OCCUPIED, PROVIDED THAT IT IS NOT USED IN
A MANNER THAT VIOLATES THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE PERMIT ISSUED  TO
THE CAMPGROUND BY THE STATE OR A COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH.
  S  2.  Section  802  of  the  executive law is amended by adding a new
subdivision 55-a to read as follows:
  55-A. "RECREATIONAL VEHICLE" MEANS A VEHICULAR CAMPING UNIT  PRIMARILY
DESIGNED  AS TEMPORARY LIVING QUARTERS FOR RECREATIONAL, CAMPING, TRAVEL
OR SEASONAL USE THAT HAS ITS OWN MOTIVE POWER OR IS MOUNTED ON OR  TOWED
BY ANOTHER VEHICLE.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
