Sorry I posted under the wrong section newbie 68 Shasta loflyte shasta owners. Do the campgrounds frown upon those canopied outdoor shower/porta potty setups?? We saw a few at a state campground in SC and thought they were a great idea after waiting in line for a shower at the bathhouse. Thanks!!

And my post reply to the question in the wrong place:
I don't think the parks frown, but wait until you see the look on the faces of those folks looking down on yer nekked self from their 35' + rig with 4 slides and the massaging shower-head over bathtub application.

Honestly, I'm not really sure; I have never camped anywhere that didn't have public showers (o.k. one place, but there is a SP down the road and I just walk to the SP early in the morning and shower there). I don't see why anyone would object, as long as if your using that tent with the dressing type room and privacy room for a porta-potty you make sure your waste goes where it belongs. Tent campers have to have something too if there are no facilities.
State and National Parks don't allow waste water of any type to be put onto the ground. There are waste water disposal areas near the water pumps in the National Parks. Most State parks will have a "Slop Sink" located beside the bath houses. At least that's the way it is up and down the East Coast.
It's more a matter of dish water. Some soaps are harsh for the environment and the left over food particles might attract critters.
