Sani-Dump Listing

Thank you to Mr. Don Middleton who has given us permission to reprint this valuable information from his website. Thank you, too, to all the individual contributors to his list.

One the things that drivers of RV’s, Trailers, and Truck Campers are always on the search for are Sanidump Stations. Being “GREEN” is important to most campers, and when the holding tanks are getting full, that pull-out can’t be found soon enough. As far as we know, this is the only camper-created web page based solely on first-person reports from real people like you, as well as direct contributions of non-park Sanidump hosts such as PetroCanada.

On the most part, sanidump stations in parks are to be expected, and some of those are open to non-camper use. The challenge is to find accessible (and sometimes free) sanidump stations along the way. Making that last visit before reaching home is high on many folks list.

There are now over 125 confirmed sanidump locations, and that number is growing. That’s directly due to so many RV’ers and campers passing the word along about spots they know about. Many smaller towns have Sanidumps, and during our own vacation this year we found some new locations. Our thanks go out to all those who’ve sent in additional locations (mentioned in the “Courtesy of…” column on the website).

If you find a sani-station that needs to be added to or deleted from the list, please email Don by entering this URL in your web browser: www.user.dccnet.com/middleton/Sanidumps.html including in the subject line “Sani Station”. We all thank you!
