Wouldn't watering with grey water be better then the danger of a fire? I wonder if any state or federal campgrounds have a system to recycle grey water back to the forest? Seems a shame to waste the water when many parks are so dry.
As far as using the CG facilities, it just makes sense to leave the moisture the shower creates somewhere else, saves water and the shower stays clean. Same with the toilet.
You would think so Sewhappy - intuitevly at least. But...Forest Rangers and CG Hosts will generally freak out if you try to do this.
I remember when we had our Pop-Up and I hooked up a garden hose to our outlet and was happily "watering" some plants in a New Mexico State Park Campground. The Ranger happend by and I thought he was gonna Taze me for "dumping" my grey water!
It may be different elsewhere, but in NM/AZ/UT/CO/WY area I would not try it.
