Best Portable Toilets for Camping in 2020


If you are preparing for camping you might want to check this list with best portable toilets for camping, all Amazon bestsellers, waterless and flushing. There are some truly ingenious items in the list.

When it comes to portable camping toilets, you can have any of the following two:

  • Waterless portable camping toilets, some call them also dry toilets.
  • Portable flushing camping toilets.

The meaning should be obvious, those from the first group are basically seats with a plastic bag to collect the waste. The second group includes the toilets that operate with water so you have a water tank in the system which you fill yourself.

In fact, there are also composting camping toilets but those are rather rare and just a few examples of that type are on the market now. You might include them in the first group above as well because they do not use water.

All flushing models are rather bulky and their sizes are usually similar to each other. The bulkiness is due to the fact that you have a clean water reservoir, plus a waste reservoir. So this is how it must be, the bigger reservoirs the better. You can have around 50 – 70 flushes with one reservoir of water. But there are nice folding carts and wagons to help you if you need to move them around together with your other gear.

Those from the group of the dry toilets can also be bulky, dependent on how they are built, some are of the shape of a basket, but you also have some that are nicely packable, you will see some examples below.

Note that you can use some of these portable toilets in combination with outdoor sinks so the water from the sink goes to the tank of the toilet and you can use it for splashing it.

How to choose

Obviously, you will have first to decide about your budget and also to think which one of the two main groups to check. The waterless models are also much lighter, just to know. They are typically built from a high-density polyethylene or polypropylene, so they are durable and corrosion-resistant.

Then inspect the weight capacity, if you are a very heavy person you will want to have something very stable and sturdy. You will see some with the capacity in the range 400 – 500 pounds, and this should be good enough even if you are a sumo wrestler (the heaviest of those guys is currently around 500 lb).

So here is our list with portable toilets for camping, these are true Amazon bestselling items in this category, the list is dynamic and it will change in time. Therefore, you might want to bookmark this text and check from time to time to see what is trending on Amazon. All data in the list are updated daily.
