"FAST “Mega dump” but no water, not even for rinsing. "

The super-slanted apron and non-standard opening mean your tanks have never been emptier, and with no restriction at the opening it’s over with in a flash! Would be nice to get a fill out of the deal but price is fair for what you get. Easy... Read more

"5 day stay limit. Way better than you’d expect from a free spot!"

Stopped here for lunch and siesta, but nearly stayed the night, it was so unexpectedly nice! Ample shade, a creek, and water spigots (working on 9/16/21), table, and grill at each of 5 sites. Plus the park itself with frisbee golf, playground,... Read more

"Fresh fill is limited and SLOW"

This dump has two dedicated freshwater spigots separate from the actual dump-hole. Signage says limited to 10 gallons unless you have some kind of tag. Not sure what that’s about, but the flow rate at the spigots is astonishingly slow. We took 20... Read more

"Overnight camping only available for members of the casino's club"

...you can't just pull up and buy a membership, either - you have to accumulate a certain amount of points/dollars of gambling. So probably, this shouldn't be included in Campendium.

"It’s a dump station y’all, not an overnight. "

Clean, free dump is around the back of the building with separate fresh fill and lots of room for easy access. Pretty well known so in winter plan on potentially being #2 or #3 in line, even midweek. I can see why some would be inclined to... Read more

"Dump not available 15 Nov 2019 due to construction."

There's a giant rectangular hole right where the dump used to be. The attendant said they're adding a new fuel tank and will put the dump back when that work is complete, but no ETA on when that work will actually be done (and really, I wouldn't... Read more

"Free dump"

Free dump right outside Medicine Lake Recreation Area. It has a non-potable water spigot that wasn't turned on when we were there early July (the campgrounds in the recreation area only opened late June). There's also pit toilets in the dump area.... Read more

"A good option for the area."

This is the only free campground in the Medicine Lake Recreation Area. There are 3 - 4 other campgrounds around the actual lake, but they cost ~$14/night. We stayed in the area, just not at this campground. All the campgrounds in the area just... Read more
