You will find that all NY State parks are not the same. E.g. at Selkirk there is a threaded hose all set to hook to your clean-out. At Long Point, there is a threaded outlet to which you hook up your own hose. Others have no threaded connection.
Regardless, you have been given good advice on whether to use the clean-out. I always leave at off times so I can utilize this feature and with a clear elbow connection I can tell you it does a very nice job.
Some of the parks pick up garbage from your site and even deliver firewood. All depends on who's running the park and what kind of staff they have.
At the last park we visited the red cap (park volunteer) told me the park manager does not enforce the generator quiet hours rule in the non-electric section if the generator is a quiet invertor type as they're not much louder than the roof top A/C's in the electric sites. Other NY parks do enforce this regardless of whether anyone complains.
