Kat and I stopped here while traveling EASTBOUND on I-84 into Connecticut to use the restrooms. Kat noticed the sign for the dump station so we took advantage of the dump station.

The dump station is located in the upper parking lot of the Welcome Center. We used the restrooms, which were clean and well maintained when we used them. There was also a maintenance man doing ground work around the rest area.

Access to the dump station area is very easy – it is in the upper parking lot. What is nice it has a large grated opening right next to the curb, so it is not necessary to have to hook up a drain hose, just attach a 90-degree elbow and open the drain.

There is also a water hose with good pressure to wash out your tank, rinse off fittings and hose the grate off. The water is not designated as potable water, so I did not add any water to our fresh water tank.

This parking area of the Welcome Center is also used by commercial trucks for parking. There is a sign advising trucks not to idle but I am not sure if that rule is enforced as one truck was parked in front of the sign idling the entire time we were there.

Pros: Easy ingress and egress; Easy to find from the Highway if going Eastbound; Paved roads in; Beautiful and many picnic areas with grills; Lots of parking spaces for RV’s and Trucks; Free dumping station; Free overnight

Cons: Rest area just off the highway so noisy; no power or water; Building restrooms are closed between the hours of 2:30 pm and 7:30 am; Only portable johns available other hours; State budget cuts no longer have any staffing at Tourist Centers; Building was poorly maintained with overfilled trash cans; Some noise from trucks coming in and out.

Note: There is a Weighing Station on the property, but it is closed down. If the upper parking lot is full, you can park in the Weighing Station area.

Because the actual Tourist Center Building is closed most of the day, we witnessed a few groups of people traveling by car urinating in the parking lot. Pretty disgusting. We did not investigate the condition of the portable johns. When the building was open, bathrooms were clean, but very old; both water fountain and drink vending machine were broken.
