Desert Rest Stop

This photo of a pit toilet was taken at a rest stop in Utah.

From being ignorant on a "pit" toilet, I can only guess it it similiar to our southern "out houses"? If I am right, did you or Joyce make a trip in there to have the experience of saying, "I did it"

Yes, an outhouse. No, we didn't use it because I was towing a fifth wheel with my own bathroom. Places like that are usually pretty nasty. Just another reason to always travel with 10 or 15 gallons of water in the fresh water tank.

In 1976 at Elk City Lake in Montgomery County, Kansas there were pit toilets just like that one in your picture but made of corrugated tin. They were located at the now closed Oak Ridge Campground. There was a his and hers. The interesting thing about them was that the tin was cut about a foot to a foot and a half above the ground to allow lots of ventilation. Whenever someone was in one you could see their legs from the calves down. The campground was closed long ago due to frequent flooding. After one of our more recent floods the Corps of Engineers removed the boat dock, ramp and the pit toilets.

I hate to break the news but that is most likely NOT a pit toilet. Rather......its a "vault" toilet! Annoying I know. I have been corrected by my brother in law EVERY time I say pit.

So where exactly is this bad boy? I might just put this on my must see list. I'm something of a vault toilet connoisseur as I do most of my camping in National Forest campgrounds.
