Nothing ruins a camping experience like stumbling across someone's "bathroom." In the wilderness it can be especially jarring. Likewise, human feces carry harmful micro-organisms that easily contaminate water sources. When you are in the park
- Go at least 200 feet from all potential water sources.
- Choose a site in organic soil to promote decomposition.
- Dig a small hole 6 to 8 inches deep.
- After use, bury completely and replace the tundra.
- All paper products, including feminine hygiene products, should be packed out or burned. If you burn your toilet paper, be careful not to ignite any wildfires.
- Alternatively, leaves and snow make for natural toilet paper.
