Absolutely the easiest. I use my Aquatainer the same way. The cap for the hose nipple is tied to the handle with fishing leader wire.

It will vary from campground to campground. We just did a 4 week trip in the Aframe and had 4 way to do it.
The dump station, It normally has a cap that you stand on that will pop up, and somebody will have left a stone to prop it up so you can pore into it, there is also running water that you can use to wash the tank out, figure on getting your feet wet.
Then there is dumping in the head. In one CG we were instructed to use the head.
We use these two above the most.
Then we had one CG with a room between the men and women head, a big sink that flushed that you dump porta potty into and flush and there was not any other water. Then we had the same set up with running water that had dumping in it and then we had the same setup at another that was for dish washing and no dumping.
Then there was a dish washing area that had a big drain in the ground that we dump grey water into. Then ran water to make sure it was clean when we were done.
So as you can see you will need to ask or see what other are doing.
We are normally in CG that have some tenter and not to many of the big RV, So KOA type CG may be different.

Had my popup for 20 years. Used a 5 gal Barker like this one:

Barker Tanks 5GALTT

I'd dump it down the dump station or the bath house toilet, whichever was closer.

As mentioned above, if using the bath house toilet, be careful not make a mess for the next guy. Or clean it up if you do.

The tank stored right under my dinette table. Easy to clean the outside.

I have the same 90 degree elbow coming off the coach, but am curious how you made the attachment for the grey water bottle. I have a 6 gal jug that I just stick the hose into, but want something more secure.

The hole the spigot screws into is the same size as a regular garden hose end. Went to a Menard's ( Mid West Home Depot) and bought a male fitting threaded on both ends. To make it more secure used teflon tape. You can use a washer hose as the connection but I made mine out of a garden hose to get the length correct also opened up the vent hole to 5/16.

I forgot to mention I cap the fitting with a soaker hose end cap for transport so as not to spill anything.
