Seasonal campsite without sewer?

We're looking to park our TT permanently at the beach. We've shopped around some campgrounds and found one that's reasonable and well located. The only problem is there's no sewer. They have a honey wagon that comes around on Mondays and Thursdays. We plan on using the site at least once a month, and we'll do an 8 day stay in July. Has anyone had experience with this kind of setup and how was it? Of course we'll use tank additives, but what if it sits for a few weeks without being pumped out? Especially in summer, I worry about odor in the trailer. TIA for any info and advice you can give.
Jen

We have ours at a permanent site. We add water after we've dumped the tank and haven't had any issues. This summer was particularly hot. I add dawn and calgon to keep it fresh.

Do you add dawn and calgon to the grey water tank only? I think I've heard of doing that. What I actually meant was dealing with the black tank sitting for awhile before being pumped? But thanks for that tip!

I assumed you meant the black tank, but I actually do it to both tanks.
