Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: Is there a "latrine" on the platform?
A: Most of our campsites do not have latrines on the platforms--only a small wooden enclosure to provide privacy for you to place your own port-a-potties.
*Several of our newer platforms on the upper Roanoke have in-ground or outside toilets (Tusca, Tilley, The Bluff and River Landing). You can look at the individual descriptions of each campsite for addition information about such amenities.
PLEASE DO NOT empty your port-a-potty around the platform when you leave! We suggest that you line your port-a-potty (5 gallon bucket) with a heavy-duty trash bag. ALL WASTES must be taken back to land and disposed of properly.
Suggestion: Some paddlers use kitty litter in the plastic bags to soak up liquid waste and reduce odor.
