All the sites I've looked at had sewer plumbed. It would be a no go for me if it didn't.

We have to buy our tank and pay for pumping but our rent is pretty cheap. In the North woods most don't have sewer. We are out in the middle of nowhere.

Oh...Really...if using the RV shower you just cannot let it run till your done?? I don't like that idea. Maybe...I don't know...I've never tried it...

We actually have a holding tank that we had to buy. It is a black 300 gallon tank that slides under the camper. Then the campground will come around to pump out as needed.

Speaking of pumping out when using the exterior holding tank how do I know when to pump out??? Oh boy! Maybe I am in trouble as I don't know a thing!!

First Time Seasonal Camping ~ Some Questions

Our seasonal has gray water dump pits also - we run a garden hose over to it as needed to empty shower and kitchen grey water so not a problem and honey wagon every week so no disposal issues for us at all!! Just sit back and enjoy 😉

Haha yeah it is what we call the guy - they are the service for the portapots that the campground puts out for tent sections and the truck will pump our black tanks but not gray as it fills their truck too fast -

Ours is gated and you can go in anytime of the year but the office is open and water is on from April 15 - October 15. DW and I are opening ours this weekend, just have to bring our own water.

Ours is open May 1st but I'm not sure when the water is actually on. We also can go in all year and I talked to a gal whose family actually camps through winter as they go ice fishing. The campground plows the road to their camper and they go in and turn the heat on and head out fishing. Not sure if I wanna do that! We did camp a weekend in November last year as my husband and the campground owner and some other friends went pheasant hunting in the area. I am very anxious to get going and get up there to see if the camper made it through the winter!!

In Wisconsin it's illegal to dump grey water on the ground.
