Grey water dump sites

We spent 4 days at Laguna Seca in Monterey CA. They have very nice hook up campsite with showers next to the race track. However they don't offer a dump site. I stopped by the local KOA which I am a member and have stayed before and asked them I could dump my grey water. ( we have a composting toilet) They said no for it was only for guest. They told me of camp ground up about 5 miles away which we went to with no one around emptied the grey tank. Just as I was about to put the hose away the manager came out and told to get the hell out for it was only for guest.

Is there a directory for dumping stations?

Flying J Truck Stops

Flying J Truck Stops often have dumping stations. You can go to their web site and get a directory. The directory lists the available services at each stop. I find them very RV friendly and With a flying j card or a good sams card I believe you get a discount on fuel and propane. They do charge for using the dump station, but I found it very reasonable with the card discount.

I think the Allstays app has fairly good listings of all campgrounds and dump stations, and is reasonable priced.

Apple/Mac devices only maybe?

For those of you planning a visit to Monterrey CA, good to know the kind of folks who run the local KOA......

thanks for sharing

Proper to ask permission to use dump station. It is private property. A small fee may be charged.

Sorry to hear about your rude treatment from the campsite hosts but thanks for the heads up on the KOA campsites. I was just about to buy the KOA Rewards Loyalty program. I haven't stayed at to many KOAs and now I guess I won't.

Thanks & Good Luck

IIMO no excuse for rude behavior, however if i wasnít staying at their campground why would I expect them to provide free dumping, there are cost associated with maintaining a campground. Some allow dumping for a fee.

If I understand the OP correctly, while the KOA didnít agree to let them use the dump facility, it was the campsite they recommended who responded rudely....

If Iím a campsite owner, Iíd advertise and welcome people to use the dump for a small fee. Extra revenue for just sitting there. Iíd be all over that....

Of course - Iím not a campground owner and since this seems uncommon, I would be wide open to learning why itís not more the norm?

I second Peterís suggestion on AllStays - comprehensive database. Best $10 app going!

I have been to KOA's that charged $10 or $15 for use of the dumpsite if you are not staying overnight there. I have paid $5 at a truck stop.

And I do not think one would get a break for just dumping gray water. If it is waste it is waste.

Most all of the KOAs I've been too would let you dump for a fee. Generally it is $10, some add $5 for the KOA kids camp.

some states, like Alabama, have them at rest stops on highways not interstates.

My guess is that the sewer system around Monterey has a limited capacity, which could also explain why there are no dump stations at the Laguna Seca campsite. At least thatís the answer Iíve been given, when Iíve run into this situation before at different places along the coast of California.
