Hygienic and comfortable: camping with private sanitary facilities
May, 11 2020
With a toilet roll walking under your arm to the toilet block. Maybe even at night! It’s probably the most famous camping clique there is. But of course that doesn’t have to be reality. For example, on a campsite with private sanitary facilities! There you have your own shower, toilet and washbasin at your campsite. That not only saves you waiting for your turn, you also keep control of the hygiene. Because no matter how nice the neighbours are, you don’t have to share everything!
Advantages and disadvantages of a campsite with private sanitary facilities
From nothing more than a hole in the ground to beautifully maintained toilet blocks that many hotels envies. The experienced camper has seen it all. And although some like luxury more than others, hygiene is always a big plus. If you have the toilet and shower all to yourself, you will definitely keep things a lot cleaner.
Your own sanitar is not only more hygienic, it also offers more comfort. After a day on the beach or another outing, you immediately dive under your own shower. Without waiting and for as long as you want. Afterwards you freshen up quietly at the sink and continue the day relaxed. Even during a visit to the toilet you are not waiting for your turn. Very nice! And do you have a partner without camping experience who is horrified by the idea of shared sanitary facilities? This extra bit of comfort can convince him or her to go camping.
There may also be disadvantages. To start with, you usually pay more for a spot with private sanitary facilities. In addition, the public areas are cleaned by the campsite staff. On a pitch with private sanitary facilities, you may be responsible for this yourself. And somebody just gone for ‘number two’? Then you can’t just quickly find another booth. Are you camping with the whole family and does everyone want to take a shower after a day at the seaside? Then you still have to wait for your turn or swerve to the general sanitary facilities.
Comfort in all shapes and sizes
Private sanitary facilities come in all shapes and sizes. In an accommodation such as a mobile home, a private toilet and shower are regularly included. But there are also possibilities if you travel with your own camping equipment. Several campsites have pitches with their own sanitary facilities. It is also sometimes possible to reserve a part of the sanitary building.
Check in advance which facilities are included with the private sanitary facilities, so you know what you will get. There are spacious cabins with a separate shower and toilet and sometimes even with a bath. But there are also small cabins where it is fit and measure. Moreover, after taking a shower, a small cabin can become quite humid.
