Re: outhouse ?
Used to go to an ex-BIL's camp in the SF along I-80, northern part of Union County back in the early to mid 70s.
Took them a mess of effort to get DCNR to finally let them build a camp addition there, in the late 70s. When it came time to build a better outhouse, that also took "forever" to be approved. New one had to have a hole dug about 3' deep; concrete slab poured; concrete block walls, parged and sealed with foundation coating, then a new shack on the top.
No way to get a precast tank back in there, at the time. '72 flood wiped out their old vehicle bridge, all they could get in there with for several years, were ATVs or one guy's big Cub Cadet (by permission of DCNR).
Also had to be located much farther from White Deer creek, than the original one that went with the camp (built prior to WWII, IIRC?). None of 'em enjoyed the extra long walk to the new comfort hut, but I never hunted there after it had been finished.
