Do I have to have a septic tank

I'm building a cabin in a remote area and will use solar and generator for power. The cabin will be above lake elevation 8'. I want to install a lift station to pump water further up hill to run into field lines.

Can I successfully treat waste this way with a septic tank or will I need one?
