How can I make a bathroom for camping?
We are going to be traveling and living off the grid for a while,I was wondering how I can make a toilet that you don't have to physically drain yourself.
Can I build a drainage system that doesn't have to be emptied?

You buy a trowel, a roll of toilet paper, and you walk a little ways into the woods, dig a "cathole" at least 6 inches deep, do your business, put the toilet paper in the hole, and bury it all.
Do make sure you are not digging your cathole within 100 feet of any water source or camp. Don't put rocks over it as this will keep rainwater from getting to it.
Humans have been digging catholes like this for thousands upon thousands of years. It's natural and fertilizes the ground. I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2016, and unless you are at a shelter with an outhouse, this is how you use the bathroom on the Trail.

Females can purchase their Go-Girl. It allows the gender
to transfer their urine into screw-cap plastic bottles. Males
simple put a penis into bottles to urinate and seal with the
screw cap afterward. Because urine is human waste that
needs pour into a toilet. All gender can add a 30 gallon
size waste liner to 5 gallon buckets, sit atop same, for
fecal discharge and all soiled tissue disposal. Seal the
plastic bucket with a snap-cover. To stop being a fly
attraction and eliminate odor. When 30 gallon plastic
bucket liner is one quarter full extract it. Ender the
bag of feces into a zip-lock freezer size bas to pack
it out to a dumpster or other waste collection service.
Human waste left at camp sites subject others to
disease risk and stench. To be humane requires
reader to stop acting like an animal.

Yep.. Called an out house. A hole in the ground with a building around it to keep the flys out.

Its called a latrine. You dig a hole, use it, and bury it afterwords.
