Since the camper place is situated just outside the campsite every camper on the campsite gets a key to enter the toilet building. At both the ladies and the lords are there cabins for washing and taking a shower whereas between this space and the toilets also a door sits. This door is very necessary with the not too pleasant air that is here from time to time to smell.
Between the piles of the head building you find a place for all the dish wash. Here you see, after the daily barbecue, a sociable chat with all the other campers when they clean their dirty goblets and plates. In a small corner you have place for emptying the chemical toilet.
