Palm Springs Portable Flush Toilet
A fully functioning flush toilet, the Palm Springs earned excellent reviews on Campingtoiletreviews.com. Eight reviewers provided a total rating just over 4 stars (out of 5). The 5-gallon toilet features a 3.2-gallon holding tank for clean water and a 2.8-gallon tank for waste water. The toilet is composed of polyethelene and features a leakproof, odor-proof design that will keep your waste contained. The toilet is smaller than other Palm Springs models, offering better portability with its sub-10-pound design.

The Visa 268 earned a very impressive rating of over 4 stars on Amazon. While the number isn't higher than others on our list, it represents reviews from 32 separate reviewers, indicating a strong consensus that this is a quality toilet. Larger than the Palm Springs, the 10-gallon Visa 268 includes a 3.7-gallon fresh-water tank and 6.2-gallon holding tank. The toilet includes level indicators for both tanks, so that you can easily see when they're getting full. A leakproof, odor-proof seal prevents any unpleasant smells or spills.

Cleanwaste Wag Bag/Go Anywhere Waste Kit
The above toilets will work great at your campsite, but are really designed for car camping. If you intend to backpack in an area where you'll need to carry out your waste, the Cleanwaste Wag Bag, now called the Go Anywhere Waste Kit, is an excellent option. Each bag provides users with a comprehensive kit including toilet paper, hand sanitizer, waste bag and zip-close storage bag. The waste bag contains "Poo Powder," which transforms feces into a solid gel and deodorizes it so that it is ready for travel. The bags can be used with the PETT toilet at campsites, or on their own in the wild. The Wag Bag earned a 5-star rating on REI (out of 5 stars, 6 reviewers) and reviewers gave solid marks for effectiveness and ease of use.
Reliance Luggable Loo
If you're not into buying expensive, complicated contraptions just to do your business in, the Reliance Luggable Loo is a simple, inexpensive wilderness toilet solution. Essentially a 5-gallon bucket with a toilet seat on it, the Loo cost just $18 in 2010. The bail handle provides reliable transportation and Reliance's treatment packs and bags can be used to solidify, deodorize and dispose of the waste. Three REI reviewers gave a rating of 4 stars and 11 Amazon users rated it 4.5 stars.
