My guess would be a cesspool with an inlet piped up to the RV parking area.

I've been pondering the same thing as the only spot I have for RV parking is way down hill from our septic tank and we have plenty of acreage.

To be fair, DW has reminded me in the past that women also have a bit more of a hygiene issue to think about than men do with respect to public toilets, simply because of different physionommeez...physiono...bodies.

Sounds like someone is confusing the CG shower with the CG crapper. We commonly use the CG shower, so as not to have to conserve out fresh water. The CG shower is usually cleaned daily and is ALWAYS bigger than the one in the coach.

So what if you just dumped at the CG and have to use the bathroom down the road. Just throw in come chemicals and motor on. It's not like it's going to rot the bottom out of you black tank or the tank Nazis are going to pull you over.

To build one at your home, get two or three of the blue plastic 55 gal drums. (you can use metal, but plastic will last forever.) Start at the top, drill 1/2 in. holes in the drums.(hundreds of them about 4 in. apart.) Drill the top two thirds of the drums. Leave the bottom third with no holes so that it holds liquid to decompose the waste. Dig a hole in the ground big enough to hold the drums and about three or four feet of gravel around them. Install a closet flange on top of the center drum. A closet flange is the fitting that a toilet fastens to at the floor of your house. Turn the closet flange upside down and fasten to the center top of the drum. buy a 10 ft length of drain pipe. (To fit the closet flange.) Glue the pipe into the closet flange. (about four feet long) cut a hole in both sides of the center barrel and 1 hole in the side of each of the side barrels. (near the top)Set the barrels into the hole. slide the drain pipe into the holes in the side of the barrels to interconnect them. install a small screw into the drain pipe at each side hole.(So they can't slide out when filling with gravel.)Fill the hole with gravel. Cover with dirt and plant grass. Cut the pipe off at ground level and install a clean out plug. I use several drums so that I can wash out my tanks without fear of filling up the drums. Also I can use the motorhome as a guest house if needed.

I've been watching this thread for sometime wondering how to respond , lol.
As a 20+ year field service tech , o have to use public facility on a regular basis. There have been a few that I moved on because of being so nasty, there have been some that I had to decide between using or crapping myself. So, I'm not opposed to using most cg facility's .
We just purchased our first rv with a real bathroom. I may use it for #2, I might not, depends on my options. If the cg facility's are nearby & clean I'll probably use them. I'm a pretty big guy, our rv's bathroom is average size for a rv, but still pretty small for a big guy. It'll be nice to have the option.
It's not an issue for dw, cause she of course doesn't #2.

My bathroom/shower is small and there is a towel bar about a foot above the TP roll. It didn't take me long to figure out that it helps to get up and "other" things and I don't mean hanging a towel.

Like I said I have more than my fair share of issues BUT some are caused by having the misfortune to have seen some things being done, like a person using one rag to clean the toilets, sinks and faucets and showers; believe me that will stick with you for a while THEN when a youngster my uncle took me to a famous ballpart to watch a game (I am older) and this place still used a trough urinal for the 'men', of course being small meant you got to to to the end, pitch wise, of the trough. Between the trough and some of the people in the 'mens' room this remains an experience that I have yet been able to unsee-it was terrible.

How I got through boot camp still amazes me.

Thank goodness for cell phones; I have seen incredible things done with pay phone handsets.
