Is it "cool" to dump graywater in the campground toilets ?

My Flagstaff 625D does not have a graywater tank, so I use 5 gallon blue containers. When they get full I normally take them to the campground bathrooms and dump them in the toilet.

I'm always very careful dumping them, and I clean up any drops that get on the seat. Usually the toilet is cleaner when I leave.

Sometimes I get some strange looks as I am carrying them in. Am I doing something against the rules ? Am I supposed to take them all the way to the dump station ? That would be a real pain.

If only everyone was as considerate as you!
I don't see any problem, as it all ends up in the same place anyway!

My guess is it just looks odd. People won't know that is grey water, and wonder how you end up with gallons of black water that you are hauling to the washroom.

LOL!!
The campground paper we got this weekend at the park actually had a blurb in it about how to dispose of your graywater; pouring it in a vault toilet was the second of 2 available options, but I am in Ontario so idk what the rules are where you are.
Check at the CG and see if they are ok with it. I personally think it would be fine but what do I know.......
Maybe the people are looking to see WTH you have in the container. Its not everyday you see someone walk into the 'john' with a large bucket

Ditto what Labzy stated. Maybe you should stick a mop handle in one bucket, then everyone will just assume you are cleaning the restrooms.

We just spent a week in Yosemite National Park and the CG rules stated grey water was to be put into the vault toilet only, and not to use the restroom toilets. But we were in Death Valley NP last November and the CG rules didn't address the issue.

Dump away! I've never noticed any strange looks with my aquatainer going to the bath house. Gray water from your bucket/container is no different than the shower water going down the drain in the shower or sink.

Forgive me, but what is a "vault" toilet ?
