Dry camping

Hi. Has anyone had experience in camping in State and National Parks without a dump station? If so, what do you do with your grey water? I have the blue tank, but with no dump station, I can't use it. The length of time I'll be staying won't interfere with the black tank(I can also use the facilities there), but with no grey tank, there's an issue.

Any help would be appreciated. I have written to NPS, but do not have a reply.

Tripp, I know your dilemma.......

The State of Georgia has gorgeous State parks which I visit frequently. However, if one exists with ANY septic hook-ups, I am unaware of it. It is a hassle to move your coach/trailer back and forth to a dump station when your tanks are full. I have a friend who spends two/three weeks at a time in different parks. He bought a wheeled septic cart for just such purposes. He can drain about fifty gallons into the tank of the cart and wheel it over to the dump station. I believe they cost about $250, but I'm not sure exactly where one goes to acquire one. Perhaps someone else can answer your problem, and further address my response.

I believe you can empty grey water (from Blue Portable Tank) into toilet facilities (pit or flush).
