Newbie pump out question...Oregon

When dry camping, where do you end up pumping out your gray and black tanks? Specifically, this fall I'm going to be near an Oregon state park. I was told by the state park information people that "it depends on how busy they are..."
Do truck stops or other common places offer this service? Are nearby RV parks likely to allow it? I understand there would be a fee with any pump out/dumping service.

Thanks!

I believe there is a phone app. hope someone chimes in with it. I have seen them at truck stops and rv dealerships. Our county fair grounds also has one that is open to public. I made an emergency dump station at my home when I had the trencher to run my electric.

Above is a internet website that will help you find dump stations.

Here is an article giving their views on best apps to use. Some are subscription.

How To Find RV Dump Stations: Which is the Best App or Website? - RV Hive

Many Truck stops/fuel centers have dump stations, many larger RV Dealers, most campgrounds have a dump station that you can use for a fee even if your not camping there.

I use it to find dump stations (brown location icons on the maps) and all my boondocking locations. I'm traveling in Oregon for the summer, and I've found that Army Corps of Engineer campgrounds will let non-campers dump for $5.

If you are truly dry camping up in the woods (not a campground) I would just let the grey water (sink and shower only) run out onto the ground. That is what I do and before I leave dump the remaining fresh water as well. You would be doing this anyway if you were tenting it...washing hands and pots n pans outside etc...

Rvdumps.com isn't always updated. I've tried to send updates, and they haven't been updated yet on the website.

Many Flying J truck stops have them, and they're pretty common out on the highway. If you look at one in Google Maps, there will be a web link. That link is for the specific location, and will list the amenities at that particular store.

For example:

If you have a Garmin or equal GPS you can add this Point of Interest File (poi) that has all the dump stations in US and Canada.
Get it free from here.

SOME State Parks have a "Dump Station" on the premisis. Some have a "Honey Wagon." A portable tank on a trailer that will come to your lot for a fee and empty your gray & black water tanks. Fee amount can be determined by how many trips it takes to empty the tanks or a flat rate. Ask around, I'm sure somebody knows about this service.

Not knowing your state, yiu may have dump stations at rest areas for free. Also, Cabelas for $10, Most Campingworlds during open hours, call. Fly'in J's have been mentioned. Most city sewage treatment plants will let you dump, again, call. Most CG's are $10 unless you are a guest. Your CG may have an onsite dump and freshwater fill. Oh, the water at the dump station may not be potable, use only for flushing black tanks. You can also dump in your home sanitary clean out, if reachable.
Look for apps but as stated, may not be up to date.

Flying J and many other truck stops have waste water dumps. Some charge a fee. Some rest areas have free dump stations, and most RV parks have them for a small fee. There are apps that show many if the locations. Park Advisor is one where you can select the items you want it to show.
And just for clarification, there usually is no "pump" involved. The tanks drain by gravity.
