Provided, that in primitive recreational camping areas only, the toilet facilities shall be required in the above ratio.

Privies and other toilets not connected to water-carried systems may be used in recreational camping areas when approved by the commissioner of health.

In recreational camping areas or dependent mobile home parks where laundry and bathing facilities are provided, such facilities shall be in buildings which are well constructed with adequate heating and ventilation, good lighting, and floors of impervious material sloped to drain. Walls shall be of washable material. There shall be no exposed studs or rafters.

Toilet facilities shall not be more than 400 feet from the furthest site to be served and shall be plainly marked according to sex. In conjunction with bathing facilities, there shall be provided a dressing area or dressing compartment, the floor of which shall be impervious and well drained. Mats, grids, and walkways made of cloth or other absorbent material shall not be used, provided that single-service mats may be used. Where clothes drying lines are provided, they shall be located in areas out of regular pedestrian traffic patterns and where they will generally not be a hazard to the safety to the occupants of the camping area. No laundry trays, washing machines, dryers, or extractors shall be located in any toilet, bath, or dressing room.

Recreational camping areas accommodating recreational camping vehicles having a self contained liquid waste system with a waste reservoir shall provide a sanitary station for the disposal of waste water. Such sanitary stations shall be equipped with a four-inch sewer riser pipe, surrounded at the inlet by a concrete apron sloped towards the inlet drain, and provided with a suitable hinged cover. A water outlet, with the necessary appurtenances connected to the camp water supply system, shall be provided to permit periodic washdown of the immediate adjacent areas. Each recreational camping area accommodating self-contained recreational camping vehicles shall provide sanitary stations in the ratio of one for every 100 recreational camping vehicle sites or fraction thereof. Sanitary dumping stations shall be screened from other activities by visual barriers such as fences, walls, or natural growth and shall be separated from any recreational camping vehicle site by a distance of at least 50 feet. Final disposal of sewage from such dumping stations shall be by a method acceptable to the commissioner of health and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
