The National Park Service plans to upgrade the toilets at Camp Muir, which is at the 10,000-foot level of Mount Rainier.
Camp Muir is a destination for day hikers and a stop for climbers before they make their final push to the top of the 14,410-foot mountain.
On a summer day, hundreds of people may visit Camp Muir. Existing toilets are decades old and smelly because composting doesn't work at that elevation.
Park architect Sue Ann Brown told KIRO-FM building materials will have to be flown to Camp Muir for four toilets that will cost about $200,000.
