Bathrooms we have recently been having a challenges with our bathroom facilities caused by cottage owners emptying their chemical toilets into toilets. Most recently the Cicero bathrooms became totally clogged with every toilet unable to use and waste backing up through sink and shower drains. The Cicero bathroom was closed for a day and camp had to pay a plumber $400 to rod out all the drains and clear the clogs. DON'T DUMP!!! If you have a potty to empty please call our facility manager Dave Cross at 224-800-3636.

Bathrooms -€“ this is a crappy subject but needs to be discussed.  Many cottages have added small (and not so small) chemical toilets.  Of course they need to be periodically emptied.  We have started to see two problems with the emptying of of the chem-johns into our bathrooms.  First, sometimes there is so much solid waste (I said this was a crappy subject…. J ) dumped in, that the toilet clogs when flushed.  Second, when dumped the waste sprays all over the toilet, floor, and walls causing a real mess and rendering that stall unusable.  So, please be courteous to your fellow campers and empty slowly to avoid splashing and creating a mess.  Flush early and flush often to avoid nasty clogs.  We are exploring installing a trap door to dump waste directly into one of our septic fields to provide a more direct route to empty waste.  However until that is finished, please follow those simple steps.
