As it can be seen by these posts, facilities vary from state to state and also by if any one of many different federal caretakers.

One Solution:
I use a 6 gallon, Canadian made, "Hydroller" water supply tank to catch my grey water in. It can be carried or rolled to the nearest safe dumping area if necessary. In a pinch as it stands upright, I can carry it with me when I leave a site.
As it turns out, most places I stay usually don't have anything as luxurious as a dump station, so I often have to do just that.

Earlier in this thread, it was mentioned that the bugs might still be bad, even at the sewer-required campground. The problem at our regular campground is that they aren't able to spray for bugs due to proximity to a nature conservancy right next door. The no see-ums love moist ground and they have a lot of it! The CG we're looking at (with the sewer requirement) is not near a water source and has little natural vegetation around it. They do spray for bugs a few times each season! I'm also looking at a MosquitoMagnet, a propane fueled CO2 generator that traps bugs attracted to the CO2 like humans emit. This might help keep the bugs from going after my wife. She is often pretty covered in red welts that itch terribly when we go on vacation. However, it's pretty expensive just as a "maybe it will work." The cheapest is around $400. It also takes time, saying it will make a difference in about a week. That's as long as we stay, so we'd miss the true benefits.

Mid November 2013 we were at Sebastian Inlet state park in Florida camping. About mid day we watched a crop duster plane with the marking "mosquito control" on it's wings making passes over the area. Later that day the no-see-ums were out in force. They got into the trailer and were at us all night. So much for spraying.

Let me say that trips to FL will end if we do not find a solution. Sometimes you will see Kevin camping without me, as I carry a target for any bugs that bite.

The other campground seems a possibile solution, so I can enjoy our FL trips.

Besides, I now have a disability, and getting around the other campground may be easier for me.

Staying the winter in Georgia was cooler than we wanted, but only a few days where it was buggy. We've been looking for some Florida campgrounds for February, but the ones we want are booked already. Being buggy and more traffic are concerns so we may stay at our usual location.

My mom was always the target for mosquitoes. We were grateful for her taking the hit for us.

Escapee parks

The topic at hand is one that I have been trying to figure out for Escapee parks. I've been on the Escapee website to try to find out whether any of the parks allow a trailer with a porta-potti inside along with a hose to the sewer for gray water. I don't think that would be considered self-contained. So would that rig have to go to the "tent area" ? Does the policy vary from one Escapee park to another?
