Choosing the Best Portable Camp Toilet

Portable Camp Toilet

Nature calls, even during emergency and survival situations. Unless you literally want your backside swinging in the wind, preparing for this inevitable eventuality with a portable camp toilet will allow you to do your business like a normal human being and not the forest creatures you may be seeing around you.

When choosing a portable camp toilet, it is important to realize that most come with chemically treated bags that  break down the waste that eventually ends up in them. Never forget these bags or their chemicals which can be bought separately because you may end up attracting wild animals to your unnecessarily stinky camp, some of whom will be happy to try and eat you. So, for your sake don’t skip the bags.

Now that you’re familiar with the basics of portable camp toilets, here are the most popular models:

Reliance Luggable Loo Camp Toilet

Despite or maybe because of its simple design, the Reliance Luggable Loo is consistently one the highest rated portable camp toilets year after year. It’s literally a 5-gallon bucket with a toilet seat attached on top, but is an all-time best seller. Double Doodie is the name of the Reliance brand made waste bags recommended for their portable toilet and they are already pre-treated with the right chemicals to break down the waste.
The Reliance Luggable Loo is very lightweight and well-priced at around $20. The Double Doodie bags cost about 18 bucks for a pack of 6 pre-treated bags.

Cleanwaste GO Anywhere Portable Toilet Seat

Extremely sturdy, the Cleanwaste GO Anywhere Portable Toilet Seat can support persons up to 500 lbs. It’s designed in a tripod style which minimizes the chance of you coming in contact with any waste and folds down to a briefcase size for easy storage and travel. Plus, it comes with one waste bag and the necessary biogel already included. The price of the Cleanwaste GO Anywhere Portable Toilet Seat is $65  and a dozen extra bags cost $34.

Green Elephant Folding Commode

Weighing in at only 3 1/2 pounds, the Green Elephant Folding Commode is also very highly rated by consumers and is an excellent fit for any survival kit as it can actually be strapped to your backpack in its folded position. With this portable toilet you need to supply your own 8-gallon bags and necessary waste chemicals.

SereneLife Portable Camp Toilet

The SereneLife Portable Toilet is probably one of the fanciest “portable” toilets on the market. Why fancy? Well, because this “portable” toilet actually flushes – yes with a tank capacity of 5.3 gallons of real water this baby is a close to the real thing as you can get.

Why the quotation marks around “portable”? That’s because this model weighs a whopping 11+ pounds empty. And speaking of empty, you will need to physically empty and clean it because it doesn’t use bags like most other portable toilets. If you expect to be stationary and want to give your butt the best, then this is the toilet you want to consider.


In case of emergency or disaster scenarios, you will still need to potty. You can keep a measure of comfort and dignity to your survival by investing in something most overlook or undervalue – a portable camp toilet. PS – Don’t forget the toilet paper!!
