Interstate Rest Area RV Dump Areas

Will be dry camping in a friends drive for a couple of nights and will need to dump tanks on way home. Noticed on last outing that in Louisiana that the rest area dump sites have locks on the sewer lid. In Alabama they have the water off and similar thing in Tennessee. Was wondering about outher states. Lady in Louisina said they were having issues with sewage being improperly dumped. Any one else seeing this? We do not do much dry camping, generally dump at cg, but in this case have to attend a funeral in Mississippi this week end.

A lot of states and even some private businesses are securing or discontinuing services because of abuse.

Like many other things people perceive as free, it gets abused until the provider has to take steps to prevent the abuse. Either by limiting access (locks, water off, etc.) or by discontinuing it all together. Flying J has had to close dump stations in some of their locations because of improper dumping.

Georgia closed all the rest area dump sites, probably for same reason. Later RJD

Many of the Pilot and Flying J truck stops have them. If you are a Good Sam member, I think the cost is $5.

In La. you have to have the security guard unlock the dump, he will also watch that you do it correctly.

The 'ppop cop' I spoke to told me they locked them after seeing a couple of tanker trucks dumping who knows what into the dump.

You need to ask that to the Goshen Rally folks that get to camp by the 'Muck' pile...
