Improving Camping Toilets

Do you dread the thought of having to use the toilet facilities when you go on a camping trip? You’re not alone in such thoughts. Many people are concerned by the poor quality of bathroom amenities provided at many camp sites. In this article we take a look at the toilet options that you have available to you. Although facilities aren’t so bad in some sites, there can be quite a bit of variation from one camp site to the next.

You won’t even find consistency within a single country, or even within a particular region. This can certainly be witnessed here in the UK where standard are good at some sites but still very poor in others. So what can be done to improve things?

Many of us tend to be rather too reticent about speaking up and look to avoid confrontation. This means that we often fail to complain when we really have a good case to do so. The case of camping toilets is a perfect example of this. When faced with poor quality toilets that are lacking in terms of hygiene, we really should be prepared to make a complaint. If we don’t do so then there’s little chance of things improving. So the message has to be that you should complain if you find that something’s not up to scratch.

What about if the camp site owner simply won’t listen to your complaints? In that case I would suggest that you may need to vote with your feet – look for an alternative site where the facilities are as you would expect.

Are there any other options? One course of action that many people are looking to take is to travel with their own camping toilets. That may sound like an unusual solution but more and more manufacturers are looking to provide camping toilets that can be used in this way.

Let’s take a look at how portable camping toilets work. There are numerous different types available but one sort have been creating a few headlines. A new generation of products are now fully environmentally friendly – that means that you can be confident in knowing that you can have the hygiene standards that you require, while still being friendly to the great outdoors.

This is a big step forward and is particularly good news for those of us who liked the idea of portable camping toilets but hated the thought of having to make use of potentially damaging chemicals. When it comes to camping trips, don’t settle for facilities that aren’t up to the standards that you require – as you can see, there are plenty of options available to you.
