The site offers many hosts offering porta potty on site actually and other arrangements on an individual hosting situation.  Not all require only a self contained unit in any way.  This is not correct info so please all dwellers use the site and see what might suit you.  Don't be scared away from wrong info on the board.

gosh almighty doing a quote post is driving me batty LOL

Their is a fee to use the site it is $100 for 14 days. or $50 for a shorter time .I don't know how long that is for. this is for the site not per person and it wavers the other per person fees to camp in land between the lakes. this site has a dumpster and a pit toilet. dump station and potable  water is 3 miles away. to make reservation call Wanda at 270 924 2044. I did a big write up on this it is now over in gatherings maybe   it could be moved  over hear since their is some interest in  a meet up in land between the lakes.

This is from the Boondockers Welcome website:

Is Boondockers Welcome only for RVers?
To use guest privileges on the site you must be traveling in a self-contained RV.

From their website:

"What is a self-contained RV?

A self-contained RV is one that is set up to allow all functions of living (sleeping, eating, cooking, and sanitation) to be handled completely while inside the RV. A toilet, sink and a built-in grey water tank are absolute requirements. Confirmation that you'll be traveling in a self-contained RV is required to purchase or activate guest privileges.

This requirement is in place to honor our promise to hosts that they'll only get requests from travelers who are prepared to be totally self-sufficient and, if necessary, as inconspicuously as possible."

It doesn't say you have to have a black tank, just a toilet. They do require a sink and grey water tank.

It is per host situation truly. Don't think you can't have a conversation with the hosts before booking and get a nice welcome Smile So many options, don't limit yourself due to a small blurb that doesn't fit all situations.

yea B and C....sink can be in a van and grey water can be in a bucket Smile

AS LONG as one does not do horrible things at the hosted campsite ever Smile you can truly use this site for all. Just find the hosts that suit your needs and start a conversation. very simple actually

You can stay on my property if you are coming thru Western KY. I have a nice camp spot. I have plenty of woods you can poop in or dig a cat hole.

Animals welcome and you don’t have to leash except at night when the night critters are roaming about.

I have a few coming thru next month for about a week I think. I hope the weather cools down because it won’t be fun now.

It took years of holding perfectly still at the pond to where I could feed my turtles without them running off. The snapping turtles are particularly paranoid but the do come now.

I once saw a bluegill beat up a snapping turtle that had inadvertently stepped into his nest. That was a sight. I never saw a fish nor turtle move so fast.

All animals on my property are my pets and I feed no matter what HDR says...

omg coon central! I am like you, I love critters and all and rarely shoot them being a farmer and all Smile

had to dispatch a few groundhogs in the pastures cause as the horses and goats etc roam they break legs in the holes so they had to go.....but the other groundhogs that live under the barns etc I let them live LOL they aren't doing any harm

I love that raging coon picnic happening!
