If you are camping in a limited facility park you adapt and follow the rules ! As for what they did in the 50's they were fogging campgrounds and spraying DDT. I just this weekend watched an entitled camper clean and wash out his cassette toilet at the fresh water spigot used by campers to wash their dishes ! By. The way there was a dump station just across the road !

Gray water dump

Several of the state parks in GA and FL that I have stayed in have gray water dumps on site. Just left Mistletoe State Park in GA and it had gray water dumps on the sites.

It is different with boats. Boats I'd say from 28' and above only have a "black tank". Galley and shower water all go into whatever body of water they are in.

i will leave my grey open when camping with no hook ups . mostly in remote places never in Campgrounds . nothing wrong with grey water . mostly just soap and water toothpaste etc . nothing to hurt the environment . Soap will even help grass not hurt it . Black tanks are another story always dump in approved dump sites or septic tank

Most boats that i've been on do not have any holding tanks other then fresh water . all goes in the the water . I know of thousands of house boats on the Mississippi all toilets dump in the river same with salt water fishing boats i've been on

We use the towable blue boy. Yes it does take up space in the back of my truck but it's very handy.

We are in the blue cart group. I figure that we bought this TT so we have our own bathroom facilities and not have to use the cg ones. I figure it's a small price to go dump the gray water every few days. The new cart designs make it very easy to hook to truck and tow to the dump station hook up hose and pull valve then flush out tank and tow back. I bought a large one so it will hold a full gray tank and I haul it in the back of truck. Yes it does take up a lot of room but I am using my own bathroom in TT.

If I see you dumping grey water on the ground in a National Park campground I will call you out and the Ranger will be notified ! Yes the rules do apply to you !
