Washing you RV at state park

New to the forum. Been RV'ing a couple of years. We store our 5er at a marina storage area on our favorite lake where there's no electricity or water. What are thoughts or protocol for washing your RV while set up at a state park? It's an Army CoE location. We'll there in a couple of weeks with our grandson and I'd like to at least spray off the dust while we're there.

Thanks for any input.

You might want to give them a call and get the answer directly from them.

A lot of state parks are on well water, some with high mineral content. You may be putting more junk on the RV than you are trying to wash off.

I've never seen any state park out West, that allows it.
COE campgrounds are federal, not state though.

Generally vehicle washing is a big no no. Some private parks may allow it.

State parks in Indiana specifically prohibit it. It's in the rules brochure you get when checking in.

The private parks we've stayed in that do allow it charge - I believe the going rate has been about $10. Or, there are mobile services but if memory serves me correctly they charge "by the foot" based on your trailer length. I believe the one I checked with once was about $10 per foot-length of your trailer. Pretty expensive.

I would try to find a place to hose it down before going. Perhaps at home when you load it?
